Microsoft Xbox 360 SA has promised they are really going to town for the Halo 4 finals event. If enough gamers pull through, it could be the biggest event Xbox SA has ever hosted.

The final is taking place on Saturday 9 February 2013 in Isando, Johannesburg.

The event is free (and so is the food and drink), so there’s no excuse for not coming to show support for the growing SA gaming scene.

Watching the Halo 4 finals isn’t the only draw-card, as those that are in attendance will stand a chance to win from an array of prizes.

The upcoming Gears of War: Judgment will also be on site for attendees to get some hands-on time with the game, a month a head of its release.

Food and drink will be provided free of charge, and if my previous attendance of Microsoft events is anything to go by, there will swollen bellies and smiling faces.

The event is being hosted at Teraco, a state-of-the-art data centre in Johannesburg. Doors open at 1:30 to 4:30 /5:00 pm

If you would like to join Microsoft SA and your fellow gamers at the event and show support for the SA gaming community, then head on over to the MyGaming forum to register for tickets.

Microsft SA Halo 4 Tournament Finals

The Halo 4 Tournament has featured clan-based matches where 8 players (4-a-side) have been battling it out in deathmatch elimination rounds.

Free-for-all deathmatches have also been played for those who backed their own ability; so the finals should be entertaining to say the least.

Gears of War: Judgment – Xbox 360 (19 March 2013)

Gears of War: Judgment’s prequel setting will chronicle the events of E-Day breaking out, when the Locust first attacked Sera. While the game will revolve around the Alpha Squad disobeying orders and the impending trial, don’t expect to spend much time in the courtroom, as the new game is described as a non-stop action romp. Damon Baird and Augustus Cole are the protagonists in Judgment.

The game will play out through flashbacks, leading us to assume we’ll get insight into the desertion and war-crimes supposedly committed by Alpha Squad, and why the group may have neglected their duty. The backdrop will then be the testimony that the Squad has to give in their defense.

People Can Fly are promising to deliver a true Gears experience, with an intense campaign and beefed-up multiplayer component.
