Ubisoft grabs Virgin for online tournies

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier first up.

Ubisoft has signed up to Virgin Gaming's online-multiplayer-tournaments-for-cash idea.

The first of Ubisoft's flock on the service will be Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier this autumn.

And that's just the start: Laurent Detoc commented that Ubisoft had a whole "line-up" of multiplayer titles "this year" that will be a "perfect fit" for the Virgin Gaming service.

Virgin Gaming requires members to pay cash to win cash; no entry fee, no jackpot.

Games are organised on the Virgin Gaming website but played out on console. A "Game Validator" checks the result of the game against your PSN ID or Gamertag and the information is plugged back in to the Virgin Gaming network.

Check out the Virgin Gaming website to find out more.
