Games as a [sort of] sporting event

As an addition to my previous post, the NY Times writes about World Series of Video Games Tournament.

"Wiewers flicking channels looking for a ballgame or golf tournament may instead encounter a couple of young guys rocking out on plastic guitars, or some (literally) disembodied digital boxers throwing uppercuts, or a fanciful animated wizard casting a spell."

Hi! This is cool! Does anyone arrange championship competitions in GuitarHero in Europe? World champion? Local champion?

Hi, I don't know that much about GuiterHero competitions. There was an unofficial GuitarHero compo at Assembly07. Perhaps someone else knows better...
