If you're good at games (and even if you're not), you might be interested in checking out the Xbox Tournaments with Virgin Gaming app on Xbox Live, with free-to-enter tournaments kicking off this week. The app is available to Xbox Live subscribers in the US, UK and Canada, and enables players of all skill levels to participate in daily, weekly and monthly contests for leaderboard supremacy, with the chance to win a share of $1000,000 cash.

Starting this week, the likes of EA Sports' FIFA 13, Madden NFL 13, NHL 13 and 2K Sports' NBA 2K13 will all be available to participate in, with more titles from leading publishers to be added. "Fun and accessible" Xbox Tournaments invite dedicated pro players and casual players alike to join in by downloading the app via Xbox Live and registering for a free account at Virgin Gaming. Existing Virgin Gaming account holders can activate their accounts here.

Xbox Tournaments with Virgin Gaming promises more features for the app in the coming months, including cash-play gaming, leaderboards and "epic tournaments", as well as more titles and availability in more countries across the globe. Dan says he's "so going to play FIFA 13" in this. Perhaps you should log on and show him how it's done, eh?

why only sports games? When there are plenty of other games which offer a much better competitive multiplayer experience.

@10 Virgin gaming has been around for a good couple of years and back then we could participate in halo and battlefield tournaments but then they just dropped support for some reason. Haven't touched my virgin gaming account since then. Will give it another go if they add some shooters.

I'll pass on any tournament featuring EA Sports games. I'm surprised they haven't shut their servers down already.

As long as by "tournament" they dont mean who puts up the most points in a given amount of time or anything. That always leads to someone hacking and then the contests trail off quickly. Better be something head to head at least then.

2: That's what happens when you don't proofread anything you write.

It'd be great if RW would take a lesson from this post, but he won't.

If there was something different than sports, I'd enter. I suck at sport games in video games.

I love how they have it advertised by "virgin mobile" just to get a hidden slap in the face to all the virgins are actually going to play these "tournaments"

@14: Virgim Gaming has been around for years. I have a Sega Genesis game called Cool Spot by Virgin Games (I assume same company?). Copyright of 1993.
