PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour

O-Games campaigning for Phil Taylor to become BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

1st December 2010 – Wellingborough, UK/… O-Games today announced that it is rallying behind the world number one darts player, Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, to be recognised as the BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2010. The 15-time world champion and star of the PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour video game now available on Wii TM , PlayStation 3 TM and Xbox 360 TM , is one of the front-runners to be nominated in the coveted awards ceremony that takes place on Sunday 19th December in Birmingham.

PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour’ support for Phil Taylor is based upon the amazing run the darts superstar has had this year; from winning the World Championship, the European Championships, the Premier League, the UK Open and the World Matchplay. Taylor also hit a jaw-dropping two nine-dart finishes on his path to winning the Premier League title for a remarkable fifth time in May. O-Games is encouraging fans to follow the official PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour Twitter page and show their support for Phil Taylor by retweeting #Phil4SPOTY and sharing their opinion on why ‘The Power’ should win BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2010.

PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour – the latest iteration of its phenomenally successful PDC World Championship Darts franchise – has evolved to support the latest developments in motion control gaming and will feature full PlayStation Move motion controller and Wii Motion+ support, in addition to standard PS3 and Xbox 360 control pads – allowing more players more ways of joining the game.

Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, Raymond van Barneveld, James Wade, Mervyn King and Simon Whitlock are just some of the big names from the PDC to play as or compete against in the game being developed by Redoubt. The motion control evolution will allow PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour to focus on fluid, accurate and simple throwing dynamics, getting players closer to the action than ever before. The new game will also build on the successes of its predecessors, with updated graphics, character models, and an optimised control system when it is released on 26th November 2010 for Wii TM , PlayStation 3 TM , Xbox 360 TM .

Further establishing its heritage as the definitive darts game for fans of the sport, PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour’s in-depth career mode will also support the latest tournaments, including the Grand Slam of Darts, a new fixture in the PDC events calendar. Player View puts you at The Oche in the eyes of a Pro, with gamers being able to control player celebrations. Plus the atmosphere will be further enhanced with an all-new commentary from TV’s ‘Voice of Darts’ Sid Waddell and John Gwynne; top level match referees, Bruce Spendley and Russ Bray; and Master of Ceremonies, John McDonald.

O-Games has also confirmed online 1-on-1 matches for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gamers, as well as PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour featuring a raft of downloadable content support on PSN: including new players, events and darting accessories.
