Play Buku Sudoku on Xbox LIVE Arcade, Win a 40" Samsung LCD TV

Posted by: Randy at 5/28/2008 1:00 AM
No single title is credited with pushing the graphical envelope of next-gen consoles like Buku Sudoku on Xbox LIVE Arcade.  (That statement was only half soaked in irony -- the game is kinda pretty, y'know, for Sudoku).  That's why Merscom is sponsoring a contest with Xbox360Achievements.org [x360a.org] for a drawing to win a Samsung LN40A550 40" LCD TV.  The drawing will be held two weeks after Buku Sudoku's May 28th launch amongst players who earn all 200 achievement points.  In addition, the next five players who complete all the achievements will win a copy of Scene-It? Lights, Camera, Action for the Xbox 360, which also comes with four wireless Big Button Controllers (which can, interestingly enough, also be used with Buku Soduku).  Be sure to register your achievements at the Xbox360Achivements or Merscom website.

CHAPEL HILL, NC – May 27, 2008 – Merscom announced today that it is sponsoring a contest with Xbox360Achievements.org (x360a.org) for the upcoming Xbox LIVE® Arcade title, Buku Sudoku, which is scheduled to launch Wednesday, 28 May.

Lights, Camera, Action for the Xbox 360™ that also leverages the Big Button Wireless Controller. 

Merscom chose an HDTV as way of informing gamers about the incredible high res graphics of Buku Sudoku.  Just as the Samsung LN40A550 represents the next step in digital televisions, Buku Sudoku represents the evolution of Sudoku into core gaming.  The HDTV features include full HD 1080p resolution, 5 ms response rate and a dynamic contrast ratio of 30,000:1.  Superb connectivity and networking with a USB port and 3 HDMI 1.3 ports with Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) also makes it perfect for the gamer’s 360.  Also, Samsung’s DNIe Digital Natural Image Engine improves the picture by enhancing the contrast, detail, and white balance. 

In addition to the Samsung TV, the other five players chosen from those that earn 200 out of 200 Achievement Points will receive Scene It? for the Xbox 360.  Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action includes four wireless Big Button Controllers, giving each player their own buzzer.  Both Scene It? and Buku Sudoku utilize the simple and intuitive Big Button Controllers for a casual and fun experience.  

 

“We feel this contest really draws attention to the beautiful graphics in our game, as well as shows the complexity and challenges in Buku Sudoku,” said Kirk Owen, CEO of Merscom. “The Samsung TV represents the cutting edge of LCD TVs.  Most importantly, though, it rewards the gamers who put a lot of time into our product.”  

 

Dan Webb, Admin at x360a.org, commented “Everyone loves getting achievements and everyone loves Sudoku, so this is the perfect competition.”
