Konami has announced the official tournament for Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence; it will take place between July 29 and September 17. The tournament, which is being sponsored by iGames, will let gamers across North America compete for a chance to win a selection of incredible Metal Gear prizes and bragging rights. Interested gamers will have to register through iGames’ nationwide centers or website.
The tournament will consist of a series of solo and team games in which contestants can participate from home or from iGames centers nationwide. More details:
Tournament matches will be held regularly each weekend, and players can participate in as many matches as they wish. Each player will be rated using the ELO ranking system that judges their overall skill level rather than just wins and losses. The players and teams with the top rating each day will win Metal Gear memorabilia such as shirts, games and accessories, while the players and teams with the best rating over the course of the entire competition will earn entry into a final elimination stage. The team and solo game winners from this stage will become Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence champions and will win prizes such as HDTVs, special in-game awards and rare Metal Gear memorabilia.
