Another tournament allowing video gamers to try and win some prize money has been announced

As the video game industry continues to expand, so does the world of professional gaming.  Games Media Properties has announced the World Series of Video Games, a tournament that will offer a grand prize of $1 million USD to the winner.  The competition will start off in June in Kentucky with four stops throughout the year before the championship tournament in December.  Along with PC games, the Microsoft Xbox console will also be played at the WSVG.  Intel and Microsoft are the official sponsors of the event.  

It should be interesting to see if the WSVG will ever be able to compete with current gaming tournaments like the World Cyber Games.

They should make it so you have to be 18 and have a social life. Otherwise, the winner will either be some 12 year old or some 40 year old hermit still living in his parents' basement.
