Sir Richard Branson – you know, the guy who looks like all three BeeGees at once who could buy your home town with his loose change – has launched Virgin Gaming. He decided to ram the announcement home by pulling up at E3 in an armoured truck which, it turned out, was carrying one million dollars in cash. This represents the total amount of money Virgin Gaming will pay out over the next twelve months in prize tournaments.

Gamers want something new, something interactive and something fun. Virgin Gaming is just that – access to play the best games in super competitive tournaments with anyone in the world and win the biggest prizes and the most rewards,” said Noel Edmonds – er, we mean, Sir Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group, and gamer-in-training. “Giving away over $1 million in cash and prizes this year is proof. We’ve had great success with Virgin Games and Virgin Interactive Entertainment and recognized the enormous potential of an online community of 40 million daily users. I welcome gamers from novice to expert to join the online Virgin Gaming community.” He said, with dollar signs appearing in a thought bubble rising from his head. Possibly.

Virgin Gaming essentially involves gambling on your skill, so it’s very much a case of having to spend money in order to make money. That said, Virgin Gaming will be running free – to – enter contests for Madden NFL 10, FIFA 10, Halo 3, and ModNation Racers. Qualifications for all of these contest begins on June 22nd so if you’re interested, prepare yourself quickly.

So if you think you’re good enough to earn some cash from your gaming skills, head over to to see how it works.
