Virgin Gaming offers Play-for-Cash PS3/Xbox 360 online games

The Washington Post (June 24) reports in an article headed "Gameworld: Video gamers can now play for more than high scores", that new online sites will offer gamers the chance to gamble on their skills as players.

Excerpts:
"Virgin Gaming will be giving away over $1 million in cash over the next 12 months through video game tournaments in which players can compete from the comfort of their own homes on consoles like Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3."

""In the videogame space, the competitive gaming landscape has only been open to pros and the elite players. At Virgin Gaming, our mission is similar to what Sony is doing with PlayStation Move and Microsoft is doing with Kinect -- we're broadening the scope for everyone."

"Over the coming months, Virgin Gaming will align itself with major game publishers and mainstream sponsors to launch tournaments for thousands of players to compete."

I just read the article, came back n was gonna type the exact same thing.. It's similar to poker in a way that you put down the money, and the outcome is up to you no matter how many people say its gambling.. smart people know it isnt.

Bringit.com and Gamingsaloon.com do the same thing. And yeah that $$$ sure as hell is real. And if you're lucky like I was once you can make a few bucks off some noob that thinks he or she is good lol
