The World Series of Video Games

Like baseball and poker before it, gaming finally gets a world series to unearth the most competitive gamer. Though the prize money isn't as good as top poker earnings or baseball salaries, $1 million in total prizes should suit most gaming budgets. The event, dubbed The World Series of Video Games, will take place in Louisville on June 2006 with a four subsequent events throughout the year. The final will be held in December to crown the top Xbox and PC gamer.

The series is sponsored by the Xbox 360, so don't expect any competing consoles at the competition. Any entrants should contact first so as to sport a slick Joystiq-branded cap or embroidered shirt that has its collar up at the event. Heck, we might even sponsor you.
