TooManyGames & Twin Galaxies Join Forces To Host First Guitar Hero
National Championships Sponsored by RedOctane.
Reading, Pa –- February 18, 2008 –- Twin Galaxies, the world's first
video game world record keepers and TooManyGames, the east coast's
longest running gaming convention have partnered up to present the first
Guitar Hero National Championships at the May 4th, 2008 TooManyGames
Since its introduction over two years ago Guitar Hero has rocked its way
into millions of living rooms across the nation. Its simplistic
gameplay combined with the classic and modern rock music the game
showcases have become a winning combination that is inviting to gamers
of all ages.
Twin Galaxies, the only video game world record keepers to work with the
Guinness Book recognizes Guitar Hero's importance in competitive high
score gaming and has teamed up with TooManyGames to showcase the world's
best Guitar Hero players.
President of Twin Galaxies, Walter Day had this to say, "The staff of
Twin Galaxies eagerly looks forward to the 1st Guitar Hero National
Championships and invites every "cyber-guitarist” in North America to
participate. The results will be go into a future edition of Twin
Galaxies' Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records."
For 5 years TooManyGames has been a convention where gamers of all
generations have felt welcome to come and celebrate their passion of
playing and collecting video games. TooManyGames is unlike any other
gaming convention that it doesn't focus on just one aspect of games,
classic or modern, development or retail, playing or collecting, it
encompasses all facets of the gaming world into one festival of gaming.
“Video gaming has once again become something that everyone can
participate in, it's no longer just something the kids do when they come
home from school.” TooManyGames founder Chuck Whitby explains, “In the
'80s you could go into arcades and see mom and dad, businessmen,
teenagers, kids, grandparents, everyone was there enjoying themselves
playing games. With today's games it's all about inclusion again,
everyone is a gamer. Guitar Hero has had a big hand in expanding the
gaming market to new and lapsed gamers.”
Prizes will be awarded to players who show exemplary gameplay skill.
Twin Galaxies is currently tracking all songs and all difficulties for
their Twin Galaxies' Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World
Records. Players of all skill levels will have the opportunity to
participate and have their name entered into the record book!
TooManyGames is bringing down the house in a new location, the Greater
Reading Expo Center in Reading, Pennsylvania on Sunday, May 4th, 2008.
Admission is only $5 for the show and $3.00 to participate in the Guitar
Hero National Championships.
Applications for table and booth sales are still being accepted on the
TooManyGames website. The Guitar Hero National Championships are
sponsored by RedOctane and Twin Galaxies, any companies also interested
