Guinness World Record Attempt For Tetris® Tournament

Brantford, Ontario – September 10th, 2008 – To celebrate its third anniversary, The Personal Computer Museum in Brantford, Ontario has been given the go ahead by the London, England based Guinness World Records corporation and the Tetris Company, LLC to attempt to establish a new record for the most participants in a Tetris Tournament on September 13, 2008. The event will also feature hands-on stereoscopic 3D (S-3D) gaming demonstrations by Meant to be Seen, the foremost authority group on consumer S-3D technology.

Tetris® is one of the leading video game brands and franchises in the world. Loved globally by people of all ages and all cultures, Tetris continues to be one of the most widely recognized video games of all time.

Over the course of four rounds of competition, participants will attempt the challenge between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. EST with the top eight contestants being eliminated to a final “face-off” between the top two players. These players will challenge each other in a head-to-head Tetris competition until a final victor is declared.

“Tetris is becoming more of a spectator and competitive game than ever before. However, this tournament isn’t about how good you are. We want as many participants as possible, and of course, as much fun as possible,” said Syd Bolton, Curator of the Personal Computer Museum.

While Tetris is a two dimension game, it is going to be a truly three dimension event. Meant to be Seen will also be demonstrating modern S-3D gaming solutions. Similar to the experience movie goers get in 3D theaters, consumer gamers use S-3D technology at home for superior game immersion, visual beauty and game enjoyment. Explosions flying out of the screen and depth that makes the screen look like a window rather than a flat projection are samples of S-3D gaming. Available hardware includes iZ3D 3D monitors, TDVision head mounted displays, and a growing selection of 3D HDTVs by Samsung, SpectronIQ, and more.

“There is a lot of excitement around these new 3D gaming technologies, and this will add a lot of fun to the event,” said Neil Schneider, President & CEO of Meant to be Seen.

The Tetris Company’s licensing agent Blue Planet Software, Inc. will also be working with the Personal Computer Museum to make the event an energy neutral one because the Tetris® brand is a proud supporter of clean energy initiatives.

Special displays including a children’s area, a unique “Tetris® Video Wall” and video documentaries as well as free tours of the museum will ensure a fun day for the whole family. The personal computer museum has over 300 functioning computers and gaming systems dating back to 1976.

Interested parties can register the day of the competition, or to save time early registration is available on the web at http://www.tetristournament.ca. A $5 registration fee is required for all participants, and all registrants will receive an official participation certificate after the event.
