PAX has revealed the 20 randomly selected contestants for the Omegathon competition. Over the course of PAX 09, the contestants will be battling it out in six games:
ROUND 1: Mario Kart ® Wii
ROUND 2: Bookworm ® Adventures
ROUND 3: Halo 3: ODST
ROUND 4: (a rhythm game)
ROUND 5: CONNECT FOUR
FINAL ROUND: ???????
That's a pretty nice line-up of games! It's also interesting that Halo 3: ODST will be part of the competition since it looks like Bungie won't be at PAX this year.
The grand prize winner will receive a trip to attend this year’s Tokyo Game Show plus $5,000 in spending money. Hit the break to see the lucky people that will be participating in this year’s tournament.
