The massive 16 country spanned world gaming tournament "KODE5" is drawing closer upon us now (coinciding with the opening of this year's huge CeBIT event in Germany on March 9 where KODE5 will be officially launched). An announcement from the KODE5 event crew working hard to make this monster event possible had popped into my inbox last week, in which I of course proceeded to post up for everyone to see.
Since then, another update with more spicey details on all the preperations having gone into making this a very memorable tourny is now available for all to read.
(HANNOVER, Germany) - March 6, 2006 - Last week, gamers from around the world were told of a revolution about to begin - a global gaming revolution known only as KODE5. We were told KODE5 will mass gamers in 16 countries in a series of regional events to find the best gamers from around the world. The best then fly to an undisclosed location to square off against the world's gaming elite. On March 9, CeBIT, the largest IT-related trade show in the world, will host the KODE5 global launch. Supported by Foxconn, Intel and ATi, the KODE5 launch will see dozens of professional gamers helping KODE5 bring gaming to CeBIT. The KODE5 launch at CeBIT will see the pros playing pros, as well as the everyday gamers taking each other on for some cool prizes.
