Official Resistance 2 tournament begins next week

Think you're a R2 hot shot? Well, now's the time to prove your worth. Major League gaming and PlayStation have teamed up to present a $50,000 R2 Ladder. Some of the best players from all over the country will face off online, and the top 64 teams (256 players total) will win cash and prizes. The first place team will win $9,000 -- not a bad chunk of change for playing a video game, right?

Registration opens next week, on December 22nd. The competition is only open to US residents 17 years of age or older. To find out more, visit GameBattles.
