Like baseball and poker before it,
gaming finally gets a world series to unearth the most competitive gamer. Though the prize money isn't as good as top
poker earnings or baseball salaries, $1 million in total prizes should suit most gaming budgets. The event, dubbed The
World Series of Video Games, will take place in Louisville on June 2006 with a four subsequent events throughout the
year. The final will be held in December to crown the top Xbox and PC gamer.
The series is sponsored by the
Xbox 360, so don't expect any competing consoles at the competition. Any entrants should contact Joystiq.com first so
as to sport a slick Joystiq-branded cap or embroidered shirt that
has its collar up
at the event. Heck, we might even sponsor you.
