SciFi Brings Gamers to Reality

The Sci Fi Channel has greenlighted a new show tentatively titled GameQuest, an elimination style reality show with 12 contestants competing against eachother in a series of video game contests.  In the end, one will be named "best all-around gamer" in the U.S.

The show will be featuring some of the top video games, physcial challenges (that should be interesting) and elimination challenges in front of live audiences.  The prize?  $100,000 and trips to World Cyber Game events.

"With two out of every three American households playing video games, it's clear that this mainstream phenomenon is a perfect arena for the channel's agenda of broadening the brand while celebrating imagination," Sci Fi channel president Dave Howe said.

The geek in me is super excited for this one.  Though, it could just be the idea of watching gamers doing "physical challenges".
