Report – Virgin Gaming to sponsor ModNation tournament

By Stephany Nunneley, Tuesday, 1 June 2010 19:20 GMT


It looks as though Virgin Gaming has entered into a partnership with Toronto based, despite Branson’s venture not being formally announced yet.

According to MaxConsole, the partnership came to light due a tournament ad inside Canadian copies of ModNation Racers, which point to the Virgin Gaming countdown clock.

WorldGaming is “an online service in which PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers can compete with each other and in online tournaments to win cash prizes”, according to MC.


The ad states that the tournament is set to go live Tuesday, June 15 and offers prizes in the way of PSPgo systems, Sony Bravia televisions and a trip to Las Vegas. There’s even a website holder for it.

Double neato.
