Samsung teams with World Cyber Games

Mobile gaming competition to take place in ten countries

Samsung teams with World Cyber Games
Forget the Olympic Games, it's all about the World Cyber Games as far as we're concerned. Have any professional video gamers ever been tested for drugs? Just a thought.

Anyway, this year's World Cyber Games event has announced a partnership with Samsung relating to mobile games.

It'll involve a spin-off competition called the Samsung Mobile Challenge, which will run alongside the Cyber Games in ten countries: the USA, UK, Korea, China, India, Singapore, France, Germany, Italy and Russia.

The Challenge will be based around Samsung's new INNOV8 handset, with players in the ten countries competing to have their mobile skills rewarded with a place in the Grand Final.

The official game of the tournament is Gameloft's recently-released Asphalt 4: Elite Racing.
