New video game popular among student testers

SHSU students were able to play 2K Sports’ newest sports video game, MLB 2K8, Tuesday in the Johnson Coliseum. The event, sponsored by New York-based marketing company City Eventions, gave students the opportunity to test the new, state-of-the-art baseball game for themselves.

The students also received prizes such as t-shirts and jerseys for playing. The biggest prizes were reserved for the winners of numerous mini-tournaments that were held throughout the four-hour event. The champions were rewarded with a brand-new copy of the video game, valued at $59.99, for the game console of their choice.

Program Council Advisor Chuck Collins said approximately 60 students participated throughout the day.

“There were about 20 mini-tournaments,” he said. “The winners could choose between Playstation, Xbox or Nintendo Wii versions of the game.”
