Can't find any information about how or where other then US/Canada gamers can enter.
Nothing in the official Play N Trade (host) Press Release or on the MW2 tournament website...
And what are we talking about ? Xbox, PS3 or PC ?
Xbox... I think. But again, can't find any info about this.
So, a lot of marketing but poor in giving useful information.
And yes, Activision is sponsor of this tournament. So we can call it an official international MW2 tournament.
The Full Press Release :
Play N Trade Franchise, Inc, the fastest growing video game franchise worldwide, is excited to host an international Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 tournament at participating Play N Trade Stores offering over $1700 in prizes.
