The tournament was a great success, we got to see more new faces than expected and we’re looking forward to having more great times with everyone in 2009!

But in the meantime, hit the jump to see what happened on the day itself.

Registration Counter! Who picked up our snazzy Soul SG T-shirt?

The waiting area outside, we had movelists prepared in case anyone would want to look up their characters in-between or before matches. Check out those pamphlets on the table! Of course, some gamers preferred to not stop gaming! (Hail the PSP. haha)

Last Minute Research!

Example of one of the setups used during the event. (Only have pics of a 360 setup. No pics of the Ps3 setups :() This setup had 2 joysticks and 2 controllers so contestants could use the input device of their choice (I was hoping to get some Guitar Hero guitars! But couldn’t find any haha!) as well as a Laptop which was recording the matches! (Videos will be available soon!)

Customized Joysticks too!

Tournament Match Ups!

Spectators soaking in all the action!

It would be fun to note that the players on the top 3 spots are the same 3 people responsible for that popular fan video “Voldo Dance 4”.

Talk about being creative AND skillful 🙂
