About the `Modern Warfare 3' battle at the DIGITAL NATIONZ expo on September 29, Dotcom said that he will donate NZ$100 to charity for each celebrity he defeats; and added: "This is something completely new for me that I haven't done before. I can't wait to see the calibre of MW3 players New Zealand has to offer, then play them and hopefully beat them."
