Halo Breaks Lan Tourney Record

Microsoft Game Studios today announced that Halo National Championship registrations have now surpassed 10,000 players, making it the largest simultaneous LAN contest in electronic gaming history. This historic milestone will be recorded by the Twin Galaxies Intergalactic Scoreboard and published in the upcoming edition of the Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records, where the champions will also be recognized as the legitimate USA champions on Halo. The initial qualifying rounds will take place at iGames centers nationwide on August 10 and 11, 2002. Regional qualifying rounds will be on August 17, 2002 at 16 select iGames centers. The finals will be held on August 30, 2002 on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA. Prizes at stake include an RCA 50-inch plasma flat screen television, Bose Lifestyle 35 surround sound audio systems, Xbox video game systems, controllers, and stacks of Xbox games. Players who still haven't registered for the competition can do so in advance by clicking here. Once successfully registered, players will be emailed the date and time they've been assigned to compete at the designated iGames center in their area. The Twin Galaxies Intergalactic Scoreboard, based in Fairfield, Iowa, has been keeping score for the world of video game and pinball playing since 1982 and monitors the highest scores on all home and arcade video games, PC-based games and pinball. Its most well known product is the Twin Galaxies' Official Video Game & Pinball Book of World Records -- which is a 984-page book containing 12,416 scores from players in 31 countries compiled. Twin Galaxies also conducts an Annual Video Game Festival at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN. For more information, go to http://www.twingalaxies.com.
