Sony and Insomniac Games have just announced that they're collaborating with GameStop and GamePlay for the first official Resistance: Fall of Man
tournament. And this isn't some wussy tournament either -- no, this is a serious 5 week MARATHON of Resistance
skill. According to an e-mail circulated to PlayStation Underground members, registration for the tournament will start June 18th (next Monday), so excited fans should be fast on the refresh button come the next work week in order to sign up for a coveted position.
There are two different competitions going on, a single player (aka Deathmatch) competition, and a team competion consisting of 3 on 3. Either way the reward pay-out is pretty damn generous, for first place in the single player competition you are rewarded the following:
- A Sony Platinum DVD Dream System, a $500 dollar GameStop giftcard and $1000 dollars cash.
And for the Team game, each member of the winning team gets the following:
- A Sony Platinum DVD Dream System see above comment), a $500 dollar GameStop giftcard and $500 dollars in sweet, sweet cash.
Not bad, not bad at all. Of course, you need to be good enough to get first place -- and it sounds like you're going to have a LOT of competition. Think you can do it?
