yeah your a sad idiot.

PS3 is going no where. Tell me where has it gone so far?
Because it should be flying everywhere since the PS2 made good sales right? Where is it going?
Home? that gay planet game?
please.... Talk to me when it comes up with anything better than VIVA PINATA... i wont even talk about Gears of War....

Dont even talk about the Elite..
Cuz the PS3 can't even put up a fight with the original 360.

And I know there is gonna be PS3 fans who disagree.. But dont be suprised when you stupid 600dollar wasters..lose another exclusive.

FANFAGSS!!

What kinda of a lame assed attempt at flaming is that? It's a tournament, for gamers, to have fun and show off fraggign skills. Stop with the fanboy crap already! I haven't got a 360, but I must admit this game is a console seller. If it wasn't so short, I probably would get a 360 for it. That and Forza of course.

if u read it says "The top 11 finalists in the world with the highest individual scores will receive the grand prize"

Next time make it less obvious that u dont read things, just post fanboyish material. It may make your posts seem somewhat justified. I sincerely doubt it however.

Have you ever player anyone in gears outside of the country and felt the bullet lag?

I would never Play in a tournament if im not host if no one has a decent connection im sorry. Gears Online Coding sucks.

They still havent fixed a number of problems: Over powered pistol, Melee attacks stunning you for a second, Sniper active Reloads are one shot downs (WTF), Host Shotgun, People running of the maps, Wepon sliding, Run Glitching
As you can see this game is still Broken, just like Cliffy said its not a tournament, because Epic is lazy
