GAMEHOPPER @ Ozine FEST '09 - DAY 2

Today marked the SECOND DAY of Ozine FEST '09! (Pictures below!)



For today we got much larger LCD TVs sent in by BRICO. We had a 47", 42" and a 37" LCD TV set up at the Gamehopper booth, and made a new setup for managing the crowd of people coming in. For the entire day we had the following games available for free play:

- Street Fighter IV
- Soulcalibur IV
- Super Smash Brothers Brawl


We had all three of the latest consoles (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii) set up for free play, and all the games were available for at least two players. Unlike yesterday, Gamehopper now had Street Fighter IV for the Playstation 3 for the entire day, so many players who were requesting for Playstation controls for the SFIV were quite happy with it.

Soulcalibur IV, despite being several months old, surprisingly still drew an incredible crowd; at times the game clearly surpassed Street Fighter IV in overall popularity! We were amazed to learn this at the event; it seems clear to me that Pinoys love Namco-Bandai Games :) I can't even begin to imagine how much crazier it's going to get when Tekken 6 gets released for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 later this year.

Gamehopper will continue to have a booth at the last day of Ozine Fest '09 tomorrow, Sunday, April 5, 2009, at the SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 2. Most likely the games for tomorrow's event will be the same as what was set up today.

For people who want to go I suggest going early; today they actually ran short on tickets and at the rate people are going to the event, I think it's best to secure tickets as early as you can, if you want to see the festivities and everything Ozine has to offer :) Also, I heard that tomorrow is the definitive date for Ozine Fest '09, since it will be the day of the actual cosplay competition! There were literally thousands of people dressed up as their favorite characters in today's event, so tomorrow it's going to be even more crazy with the actual competition between cosplayers taking place officially.

Good luck to everyone!
