The team consisted of Akash Munsaur, Paul Grobler, Peter Ewang, Kyle Swanepoel, Dennis Moore, Kyle Osler and Shaun Davis. They utilized their partnership with some clients to be able to setup a wonderful event.
Gamefinity the distributor of PlayStation in South Africa along with Koodoo came on board and provided 9 PS4 units for the event for tournaments and some freeplay areas. There was a ton of game available and the PSVR with Beat Saber was especially a hit. The tournaments consisted of FIFA, Gran Tourismo and Mortal Kombat.
