Latest in PC gaming draws crowd in Sydney
‘Atomicans’ are proud to be called geeks.
In fact, this community of computer gamers and Atomic magazine readers are “über-geeks” according to Channel 9 television news.
The Australia-wide broadcaster recently covered Atomic Live 2007 – Atomic magazine’s increasingly popular live event – calling it “a show like no other”.
The show filled Sydney’s showground this October with nearly 2,000 Atomic readers for a hands-on encounter with the latest in PC gaming and hardware.
Perhaps the show’s biggest drawcard was the Australian World GameMaster
Tournament. In the first professional competition for Australian
gamers, team and individual champions won cash prizes.
Jon Westnedge, Atomic’s associate publisher, said that more than twice as many ‘Atomicans’ attended in 2007 than in previous years.
“Exhibitors heaped praise on the event with constructive talk about bigger and better involvement next year,” said Westnedge.
The first Atomic Live in November 2005 gave Australia its first glimpse of the Microsoft game Xbox 360.
