Add this app to the list of potential apps on the Xbox platform. Virgin Gaming has a online tournament gaming community of over 2 million gamers. The new “Xbox Tournaments” application now offers members of Xbox LIVE access to tournaments directly from their Xbox 360 console. This application allows users to find and compete in gaming tournaments without ever having to leave their console.
Virgin Gaming has decided to host a $100,000 tournament rewarding users for playing on the app.
Here is the description of the app from Vertigo,
Gamers can participate in a variety of games and challenges for prize money. The platform supports several top games so it’s likely you can win prizes playing games that you already know and love. If your game isn’t there yet, no worries, more will be added in the future.
You don’t need to be a hard-core gamer to enjoy the platform either. Virgin Gaming has something for every skill level; even free tournaments if you’re not yet up to accepting a paid challenge. And if you’re not interested in a tournament, the app offers “Head to Head” matches, where players challenge each other to a game with a mutually agreed upon jackpot and rules. In addition, the application has deep integration with Xbox LIVE friends to make it easy to see what your friends are playing and then compete against them. After you win, share it with the world through in-app Facebook sharing.
Since your money is on the line, the application offers extensive information about gamers’ reputations, win/loss history, and feedback. Virgin Gaming also supports you through match support, instructional videos, and FAQs. You can also monitor your complete transaction history and make deposits directly into your gaming account via your Xbox LIVE account.
