Apart from games, there are also other events being held at X08 other than just games.. They are:

Are You The Next Xpert?

In August this year, Xbox Singapore launched a radical initiative to bring Xbox fans together online and introduce newcomers to Xbox LIVE. The Xbox LIVE Xperts program is currently led by local blogger Sheylara, who has become the face of the local Xbox team to help build a vibrant online community. The initiative has generated a strong positive response from local gamers and if you’ve always wanted to be part of the Xbox team, now is your chance to be the next Xpert!

Xbox Singapore is now calling for video entries from potential Xperts and the winner will be announced at X08. Log on to www.xperts.com.sg for more details.

Lara Croft takes on Singapore

Lara Croft, the fearless adventurer from Tomb Raider series is making a special appearance at X08. Featuring the essential characteristics at the core of Lara Croft’s personality -- brawn, brains and beauty - Alison Carroll particularly compliments this iteration of Ms. Croft.

One of the top draws of X08, Tomb Raider: Underworld is the first Tomb Raider game designed to fully reflect the physical athleticism and real-world skills required of a world-class adventurer. Sharing Lara’s strength and grace, Alison is an experienced competitive gymnast who has performed and competed across the globe. Her more than 12 years of gymnastics training align perfectly with the game’s enhanced movement set and you can expect some high-kicking action at X08!

Hot Rods, Hot Babe

Get your picture taken with 2007’s Miss Maxim and Singapore’s Champion Motorsports Car when you bring your Xbox 360 copy of Midnight Club LA to the IAHGames booth. And stand a chance to win a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle (the same one featured in the game) if you pre-order Midnight Club LA before 23 Oct.

Well, thats about it about this announcement of X08.. For more info, click here.. Hope you will join everyone including me to the event at end of October.. See you there.. ^^


  1. excuse me.. where is the ps3 booth?


  2. X08 is a pure Microsoft marketing event. It traces its roots back to X06 when they brought the hype and idea of their booth from E3. Back in 2006, they have a tent which is a replica of their booth in E3.

    Don't expect any PS3 related games. Other than Gears of War 2 which I have heard rumors is going to be on the PS3 as well.

    Ninja Blade is coming and here is 5 Reasons Why I'm Looking Forward to Ninja Blade

    1. Blood and dismemberment, something that should never be missing from a ninja based game :)
    2. Awesome features like Ninja Vision and fighting while falling from a skyscraper
    3. Quick-time events, nuff said, it's fun & interactive
    4. "Resident Evil" like storyline (Virus spreads and infect people kinda thing? Yea...)
    5. Doesn't have camera angle problem unlike Ninja Gaiden 1 & 2, which rocks...

  4. What a cool collection of games.
