Online Shooter Brings Cash-For-Kills Gaming To U.S., Only In States Where It's Legal

MTV Multiplayer writes: "Ever wanted to translate your gaming skills into dollar bills?

Now's your chance.

In the online multiplayer first-person shooter called "Kwari," players go can head-to-head to win jackpots of cash.

Launched in early January in Europe, "Kwari" is a free downloadable game - but you have to spend money to make money. The ammo will cost you five bucks for 5,000 bullets, and that's the only cut that publisher Kwari Limited gets. The money for the jackpots is pooled together from real money spent on in-game goods - weapons, health upgrades and self-inflicted injuries - and it stays strictly in-game. With Visa, Mastercard and PayPal on board, "Kwari" looks to set its sights beyond Europe."

Interesting concept of basically betting on if your going to win or not. Sort like the online porker craze, but with an FPS game. Is there team play, imagine the possibilities. Imagien if some noob cost the team 10 K or something, man that'd lead to some kind of trouble.

but i'm not that good, i wouldnt risk money on an fps what if i'm having an off day?

although i might be tempted to try it once in a while if it was gears/or resistance...

there is one big problem with this poker games dont get glitches that allow for unfair play but this game is almost 100% guaranteed to have someone trying to get away with glitches/or cheats haxors lol

The graphics aren't the point. This could be the original doom, and people would still play it because of the concept. Online poker doesn't have good graphics either, and look how big that is...

Now you have a reason to cheat.

I would cheat if money was involved

TheExecutive3716d ago

yeah when money is involved who cares about fair play, respect, and honesty. /sarcasm

have yet to see an online game without cheats and hacks this one will be even worst than most.
