Below are the rules for the GRID Fastest Time Tournament -

RULES FOR THE RACEDRIVER GRID “FASTEST TIME” TOURNAMENT

Mechanics:

Players must sign up at the Pinoyxbox booth for the Grid “Fastest Time” Tournament. Sign up ends once the limit for players is met or if the time limit for sign ups is finished (whichever comes first). Players will be informed when the tournament will start. If a player is not present when he is called to play, they’ll be given two minutes grace period. If the missing player is still not present at the time of his turn after the two minutes has expired, he is disqualified.

Sign up time: 10AM-1PM. Tournament starts 1:05PM and goes on until 4PM (hopefully it finishes before 4PM).

There will be a maximum of 16 players accepted for this tournament. After sign up, the players will be ordered at random to determine who will get to play first. After the order of players is determined, each player takes turns playing on a given track for Racedriver: Grid with the car, driving assist setting, and control setup of their choice. The players are allowed 5 laps to post a fast time. The player who posts the fastest time among all the players wins the tournament. (Specifics on the track, car type, and other details, will be posted below. )

In the event of a tie, the players with tied lap times will play again until a winner is determined. In this (highly unlikely scenario) the referees/moderators will choose a different race track for the tied players to race on, but the other rules will remain the same.

Age Restrictions: None

Game Settings:
· Car Region: Japan
· Car Type: Any Pro-Tuned car
· Game Mode: Grid World > View Cars > Japan > Select Car > Test Drive
· Ghost Car: OFF
· Driving Assists: Default is ALL ON, but players can set this as they please
· Controls: Default is PRESET 1, but players are allowed to customize their controls
Race Track Specifications:
· Track Region: Japan
· Track Select: Okutama
· Track Type: Grand Circuit

Car Specification: Any Japanese, Pro-Tuned Car starting from class C (Classes C, D, E are selectable).

Number of Laps: 5

Rules regarding race restarts/lap times:
· A player can restart his race at any time by pausing the game and selecting RESTART RACE. Doing so adds to his current lap total. For example, if the player is halfway through the lap then decides to restart, that adds 1 lap to the current lap total for that player. Referees must take note of the number of laps that a player has already run through the track.
· If a player restarts five consecutive times, the fifth restart would be his fifth lap, and then he wouldn’t be allowed to restart again.
· If adding the number of race restarts and the number of laps executed totals to five, the player will not be allowed to restart again after the fifth lap.
· Players pausing the game or pressing the Xbox Guide button for other reasons and not for the purpose of restarting the race will be disqualified.
· The referee/moderator must take note of the lap time for each time that the player goes around the track. If the player intentionally restarts the game while the referee is taking note of the lap time, that player will be disqualified.
· If an unexpected game glitch causes the game clock to post a very unrealistic time (for instance, it posts a 10 second time due to some software error), the game will be restarted completely and the player gets to play again. If he already went around the track for a few times (for instance if he already posted 2 laps before the error), he’ll only be allowed to run the number of laps left before he completes the five lap total (like in the example earlier, if he posted 2 laps already, he can only run 3 more laps and that’s it).

Player/Audience behavior

· Players must exercise sportsmanship before, during and after their matches. Players that exhibit any form of unsporting conduct (swearing at the other player, trash-talking, etc.) will automatically be DISQUALIFIED.
· Onlookers in the audience who are rowdy or verbally/physically abuse the players before, during or after the tournament will be forced to leave the premises.
Controller:
· The standard Xbox 360 gamepad will be provided for each player at the playing area.
· The Microsoft Xbox 360 Steering Wheel will NOT BE ALLOWED for this tournament.
Other rules:
· A referee must be present and monitoring the match to make it official.
· If a player causes an intentional hardware reset or other problem, that player is disqualified.
· If a hardware problem occurs in the middle of a person’s game, the game will be restarted completely and the player gets to play again. If he already went around the track for a few times (for instance if he already posted 2 laps before the error), he’ll only be allowed to run the number of laps left before he completes the five lap total (like in the example earlier, if he posted 2 laps already, he can only run 3 more laps and that’s it).
· For any other situation which arises which is not covered by this rule set, the Pinoyxbox moderators will confer with the referee(s) and render a decision. Whichever decision is reached by the moderators is FINAL.
· The referees and the Pinoyxbox moderators reserve the right to bar any player or group for whatever reason from the Pinoyxbox booth before, during or after the tournament.

Winners:
1st Place - Infinite Undiscovery, Brothers in Arms
2nd Place - Warhammer Battle March
3rd Place - 1 10 piece D Skins

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts

Microsoft:

- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
