14 British Cyber-Olympians Head to Singapore to Do Battle
This weekend saw the best of the best of British finger-bashers taking part in the UK National Finals to decide who will ultimately play at the WorldCyberGames Grand Final - the videogames equivalent of the Olympics. It took place on 28th October at NamcoStation in London's County Hall and was a hard fought event where the slightest mistake took players out of contention.

Every year the WorldCyberGames Grand Finals takes place in Asia with the top video-game players from around the globe battling it out for Gold medals and superb prizes that befit the "Olympics" of computer gaming. Last year alone the Finals carried a staggering £200,000 prize fund spread across many different genres, ranging from ultra-violent beat-em-ups to brain-teasing strategy games.
