The lights are on
Your mother might have told you that you can't make any money playing video games, but Virgin is doing its best to prove her wrong. This week, Virgin Gaming has released a new Xbox Tournaments app featuring free and buy-in competitions.
To kick off the new campaign, players can compete for a chance at a share of $100,000. By playing FIFA 13, Madden NFL 13, NHL 13, and NBA 2K13, gamers can challenge friends and random opponents. The higher up on the leader board you land, the more money you'll earn.
Starting in May 2013, Virgin will be updating their service with premium tournaments. More titles beyond the initial four sports offerings will join the program once things begin to ramp up. To get started, visit the Virgin Gaming Xbox Tournaments portal and sign up. Finding the app on the dashboard was a bit tricky, so a search via the Bing tab (it's that one you don't often use) is probably the way to go.
