You know I’m there. Out of curiosity, what made you guys change the price to $10? Doesn’t affect me either way but I am sure some people will be less enthusiastic about the price increase.

It cost myself, mike, and spooky money to run the events. Everything we do, flyers, extra games and systems, transport of consoles/equipment all comes from our own pockets. We made no money off of previous events other then those players that won. Any money that we do make in the future will go right back into the tournaments, upgrading spookys stream and the likes. We aren’t even going to lie about it.

We will see how it goes. We hope that you guys still come out and support us. We try to give you the best tournaments we can and we all work really hard in making that happen.

That’s cool man you guys definately deserve to make something out of this at the end of the day. Keep up the good work.

Might come… Wednesdays are tough with work and I don’t live too close.

Fucking PS3…

What now? I talked to the BB guys, they play on PS3, so it was suggested to us to run it on PS3 so we are. Just borrow a stick…

I think I might try and make my way down there, with some people. Keep up the good work guys

lets gitttt it

Come on guys. Lets get 70 ppl for this one!!!

blow it up!

i might go to this…are there adapters for ps3 controllers for the 360?

have to provide your own.

so im not sure if you guys know this or if my browser is f’ed up but on the calendar it shows that the tournament is the 8th which is a sunday. I’m sure ppl that are smart enough to read wont care but im looking for a tourney on sunday and if i didnt notice that someone said “wednesdays are tough” I wouldnt have bothered to recheck. aside from that does anyone know of any tourneys available on sundays in nyc. Im just moved back from austin tx (arcade ufo, fubarduck fame) and am desperate for some local beatdowns on the weekends…i work weekdays so i wont be able to make it to this one… by the way thanks in advance to anyone who responds…

would it help if i brought a ps3 in?

what 10 bucks now. What happened O.o

That’s what I’d like to know

Sorry, but the tournament format is remaining on Xbox 360. Tournament matches will not be played on PS3. If you play on a PS3 pad, I suggest that you get a converter.

no problem dude ill stop by anyway i got a 360 controller i can use.
