Hong Kong Anicom / Gamefair 2007 & WCG HK Preliminary Official WCG HK T-Shirt now in stock at Play-Asia.com (with lots of pictures)



The Hong Kong Anicom / Gamefair is a relatively small comic, collectible and video game fair compared to international events. But as Hong Kong people are crazy about games and anime, the show attracts about half a million visitors every year and the exhibition hall is incredibly crowded from the first to the last hour of the 5-day event.

One of the biggest attraction of the show (besides the Samsung Game Girl Contest), is the World Cyber Games Hong Kong Preliminary, traditionally held on the Samsung booth.

This year the Hong Kong Preliminary featured competitions for six different games, offering the chance to qualify for the WCG Asian Championship in Singapore and the WCG main event in Seattle.

For Play-Asia.com it was the first time to be one of the sponsors of the WCG Hong Kong Preliminary and the HK WCG national team, so we were truly excited about the whole event and pretty surprised about the quality of the competition. The tough and often very tight matches showed that Hong Kong's e-sport scene is getting stronger and more professional. Almost 50 teams alone signed up for the Counter Strike tournament.

The most outstanding e-sport athlete of 2007 is for sure Li Kam Fai (Nicolas), winning the Warcraft III Tournament for the third year in a row. After reaching the round of 16 in last years WCG main event in Rome, Nicolas is our biggest hope for the Asian Competition in Singapore and the Seattle event.
