Virgin Gaming Xbox Live Tournaments App
I'm excited to announce that the Xbox Live Tournaments app powered by Virgin Gaming has just launched! Our team at Vertigo partnered with Virgin and Microsoft to design and develop a way for Virgin Gaming's community of over 2 million gamers to find and compete in gaming tournaments without having to leave the Xbox console.
Most Xbox 360 LIVE applications are media applications but Virgin Gaming broke new ground by building a feature rich Xbox gaming application with sophisticated workflows and payment system. It was a lot of fun to be part of the team that brought this unique application to life!
To kick off the new app, Virgin Gaming has decided to host a $100,000 tournament rewarding users for playing on the app.
Time for me to brush up on my Madden skills...
