Event: Sharing The Fever – Power Mac Center Extends Arcadium 2.0 To Pinoy Media

Let The Games Begin!

Coinciding with the return of its successful app arcade tournament dubbed Arcadium, Power Mac Center (PMC) shared the excitement of the event with the members of the local media at the Cyberzone area in the Annex of SM City North EDSA last Friday.

With exciting games and big prizes at stake awaiting the winning participants, Arcadium 2.0’s special leg served as PMC’s way of thanking media for its continuous support. Tracing its roots in 1994, PMC has been a recognized Apple Premium Reseller and an Apple Authorized Service Provider in the country. PMC today has twelve branches located nationwide: Greenbelt 3, Rustan’s Makati, TriNoma, The Annex at SM City North EDSA, SM Megamall, SM Marikina, Power Plant Mall, SM Mall of Asia, Festival Supermall, SM Pampanga, Northeast Square Greenhills, and the newly-opened Abreeza Mall in Davao.

Scrabble was no child's play with these journos. The event's culmination was actually delayed because all had to wait Scrabble players finish their "word war".

Fortunately, no more numb thumb after playing Street Fighter, thanks to the iPod touch's nice display.

The more hardcore ones fought for supremacy over UberStrike, a first-person shooter game, on iMac desktops.

Arcadium 2.0’s media leg was divided into three different categories. Registered players squeezed their minds in Scrabble, brawled their way to championship in Street Fighter, and aimed their best shot in UberStrike HD. The games were played on various Apple products such as the iPod touch, iPad 2, and Powermac.

Taking part in the event, PMC’s partners Belkin, Divoom, Globe Telecom, Klipsch, Logitech, Otterbox, and Sandisk put up their respective kiosk around the event’s spot, showcasing their latest products for Apple devices, some of which were offered at discounted prices.

Said Power Mac Center Marketing Manager Joey Alvarez, “Power Mac Center’s app arcade tournament is our way of showing especially our younger game-loving customers that Apple products are all about fun and enjoyment shared with friends and acquaintances. This event is also our way of thanking our loyal customers who trust PMC in providing them with the latest Apple products and services."

The final stage for non-media participants of the Arcadium 2.0 was held the next day, Saturday, at the same venue.

We thank Power Mac Center for giving us the opportunity to participate in the occasion. For more information on the Apple products that PMC carries under its belt as well as the company’s future activities, please visit www.powermaccenter.com.
