Don't they realise people have tried this before and failed before, quite a few years ago now...

That's what i was thinking, plenty tried around 3-5 years ago, and none made it successful.

TabbyBW2554d ago

Yea, i know, it's crazy.

Killer62554d ago

Doubt it'll work, but might try it out.

EddyD2554d ago

I think it might work out, looks like they're keeping it small to start with, could be good.

Killer62554d ago

They need a better choice of games if they really want to make it succesful though, CS is only for the hardcore nowadays.

EddyD2554d ago

CS is still pretty big, but i agree, if they could do it with a COD title they'd be fine.

TheStee2554d ago

Activision would never allow this on a CoD title coz they wouldn't make enough from it without pricing people out of it.

This seems like an idea that's been tried before, but lots of things take a few tries to get off the ground so it's worth a look I reckons.

yes if they can learn from the others mistakes it could work. I remember Tournament.com but they didn't have tournaments (only could play 1 team vs 1 team) and you couldn't actually play with your team (would split players up randomly based on a "skill ranking" so that didn't work for all the existing hardcore gaming teams already out there). This gosu thing can play tournaments with your team, so that is a lot better I think. I would like to see it work cause I am a hardcore gamer. More games would be good of course.
