Competing against more than 700 gamers from a record 74 countries, the United States overcame the toughest competition in World Cyber Games (WCG) history to capture three gold medals, two silver medals, and a bronze medal in twelve PC and Xbox 360 titles, and won the overall team championship at the Grand Final in Seattle.
It is the United States' second team title and first since the 2005 WCG Grand Final in Singapore. Team USA captured gold medals in "Tony Hawk Project 8," "Gears of War," and "Dead Or Alive 4." South Korea and Brazil each earned two gold medals while Germany had one gold, one silver and three bronze.
The seven-year-old WCG competition, which started in South Korea, has been dominated by South Koreans and Germans since its inception. So far South Korea has won three Grand Finals including last year's. According to organizers, WCG is the largest international gaming festival with over one million attendees and visitors every year.
