You know someone is trying to make a splash when they include the titles of the events they are working with. When they have multiple events that's even better. Still, anything held at Comic-Con has the possibility of being huge (simply because Comic-Con is huge), and "Gamer's Showdown" is a cool event name. Westinghouse is going to be showcasing a few of their display models at varioius events across the country. They're going to be brandishing their top of the line 1080p LCD HDTVs and monitors for everyone to see. I hope they're playing some sort of combat game as opposed to showing down who can dress Barbie the prettiest, which is how Chuck settles gaming disputes.
