Top-ranked gamers seek out local talent to join Pro Team

MISSISSAUGA, ON (June 25, 2008) – Amp Your Game is Canada’s biggest national video gaming tour, stopping at nine major cities from Halifax to Vancouver and looking for Canada’s best gamer to be the fourth member of the Amp Energy Pro Team, North of 49, along the way.

At 3,500 square feet, Amp Your Game features 80 gaming stations, hundreds of the latest games, and a variety of activities for both casual and serious gamers. It also provides the ideal platform for the three-member Amp Energy Pro Team, led by Nelson Triana (gamer tag: G-SpOt), to audition gaming hopefuls in a search for its fourth member. The team is the first-ever to be sponsored in Canada and is currently the top-ranked, professional gaming team in the country.

Toronto is the fourth stop in the national tour and Amp Your Game will be set up at Harbourfront Centre for an action-packed four days of gaming tournaments, open game play, live DJ entertainment, hundreds of games, prizes and giveaways, and the Search for the Pro competition.

Amp Your Game is designed to appeal to the growing number of gaming enthusiasts across the country. It is free and will be open to the public in Toronto from July 3-6th, beginning at noon each day. Visit for more information.
