Aside from dozens of cosplayers wearing their most unique alien alter egos, Acer Philippines introduced four of their very own creature creations:


  • PREDATOR GRIM, which basically describes the whole line of Acer’s Predator Gaming series. It is form and function – presenting impressive gaming power in compact cages all dressed-up in a more aggressive, sharp and intimidating look. It’s alien-tech inspired – that’s what it is.
  • KILLER DOUBLESHOT PRO is the Predator’s core strength which boast of optimize bandwith utilization where you can split your internet requirements over wired and wireless connections simultaneously.

The wild party and launch was led by Predator Marketing Manager and Global Representative STEVEN J. FUNCKE who was wearing a really cool Predator shirt and jacket during the launch.

“The Philippines has been tagged to be a haven for both serious gamers and enthusiasts and we know they’ll love the Predator, which has now expanded from a desktop to include several other devices built for the gamer in everybody. We’re quite excited with what the Predator can offer to Filipino gamers, something they haven’t seen in other brands,” Funcke said.

Speaking of other Predator devices, here are the cool products that were introduced at the Philippine launch:


With its bold highlights, razor sharp angles and dynamic geometry Predator 15 laptop will surely catch the eyes of Pinoy gamers and even non-gamers like me. The unique thermal rib design establishes a lasting impression, an aura of power and high performance. Its customized LED-backlit keyboard makes your gaming truly immersive and game all you want because the Predator 15 has a fiberglass frame that allows superior and robust stance.
