Esports and Gaming Summit 2019 is in full swing with Day 2 just concluded. The biggest gaming convention in the Philippines brings together some of the biggest brands in tech and gaming as well as up and coming developers and artists under on roof. This year’s convention is no different while also offering convention goers something unique this year.
We decided to take a deeper look at the different booths and we’ve chosen five that were booth pretty exciting aesthetically and also had a lot to offer to the convention goers. We decided to have a good mix of tech and gaming to the list.
Before we get to it, we’d like to give a special shoutout to Gamdias which made the most out of the space to highlight their products.
MU Origin II has quite the booth that’s dressed up like a pub with barrels, a bar area, and bottles. It transports you from the ESGS floor to the world of MU Origin II. Inside there are five stations which include liking their social media pages and arm wrestling a guy. Upon completion, you get MU Origin II swag.
The booth just stands out among the rest and has events throughout the convention making it interesting enough to pay a visit especially if you’re a fan of the game.
ASUS Republic of Gamers has the second biggest booth in the convention, next only to the PLDT – Smart Cyber City booth, which we’ll get to later.
The ASUS ROG booth, like the MU Origin II booth has five stations to complete activities. These include playing video games and experiencing their setup first hand and taking photos with the setups at the booth itself. Freebies await those that complete it along with it a chance to win items in the raffle at the end of each day.
Next up is the biggest gaming booth this year, Nintendo Switch by Maxsoft. Yup! Nintendo is here! Well… technically. Here, you can try out various Switch games, but it is to note that the majority of these games have already been released.
There are two unreleased titles at the booth in Just Dance 2020 and Harvest Moon: Mad Dash. The other titles along with them include Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Mario Party, and Super Mario Odyssey.
Some games will have a limit to how long can you play, like 7 minutes for Pokemon and 12 minutes for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you don’t have a Nintendo Switch yet, this is a good time try some of the games out before you ultimately decide to get one.
As we’ve mentioned before, the PLDT Home – Smart Cyber City is the biggest booth at the convention and doesn’t disappoint as far as what you can do and get from it goes.
Unlike the other booths at the convention, the Cyber City has a point system in place which works with a QR code that you get when you register. By participating in the booth activities like taking photos or playing games, you get points which in turn can be traded in for different items like ESGS merchandise, MSI swag, Fantech merch, stickers, Rakk mice, and Audio Technica headphones, to name a few.
It is the unique point system and diverse products that you can get from the booth that made us include it in the list.
Last, but definitely not the least is the Mountain Dew Fighting Game Arena. The Fighting Game Arena is a mainstay at ESGS and features a decent selection of fighting games this year. As a booth that focuses on esports, it is a good place to go to for a mix of hype and chill.
Here, you can watch the tournaments as well as try your hand at playing against other members of the fighting game community. It doesn’t offer as much as the other booths as far as things to do goes, but it does offer something different.
