"Paris, April 24th 2012:
Oxent raises the veil on the Cyberathlete Summit (cybsum.com), a new events format highlighting video games as both a show and sport, and showcasing the talent of its champions, who are true athletes and new icons in our digital society. The three pillars of the Cyberathlete Summit:
Legendary players, both French and international
A tournament held in an auditorium open to the general public
100% of the matches live broadcasted on the Internet
3 events have already been scheduled for 2012: in June, October and December. Each will feature 1 or 2 games, on PC or console, with the ambition of driving the video game industry and its broad audience in the world of electronic sports.
The first Cyberathlete Summit will be held in Paris on Saturday June 23rd, along the Champs Elysées, at the Pierre Cardin theatre, which will be transformed for the occasion into a futuristic arena. With support of Ubisoft, the game selected for this first edition is the awaited Shootmania Storm, the Online Multiplayers FPS on PC designed by Nadeo, creator of Trackmania.
A select group of French and international champions, guests of the organisation (travel/lodging), will take part in the encounter in a spectacular format that is to be announced soon. The events will last 7 hours over two sessions (afternoon / evening) with 400 spectators in attendance and thousands more expected on the Internet."
