sweet! I also read that every player has a 'bankroll' that tags along with you so you actually have a reason to not play like a complete idiot. If you lose all your money there is going to be consequences, I'm interested to see how this works out.

THis is a primary reason believe it or not that I am keeping my live account updated, My wife plays online at least 4-6 hours a day and is good, you can all borrow money from me for a fee (+ interest), If you don't pay me back expect my boy " big Daddy" to come pay you a visit

It was supposed to be released today at 6pm, and be free to download for 48 hours. It is the full game available for free, not a demo. Once 6:01pm hits on friday, it is supposed to cost 800 points.

Correction/Update: Over at my clan message board, a few of the guys downloaded it last night. So that means it shoudl eb out already. They said it was a small file and a quick download.

I wouldn't say so. Most everything that's been on there has been very reasonably priced.

You should be able to win points :yes: For example, lets say that a couple times a week they have a 500 or so person tournament with this poker game and the prize pool is 2000 points or something, top 10 get payed. That would make things wayyyyyy more fun to me. They could do it for a lot of games too. Maybe they do have this stuff though, I dont know, I dont have a 360...

But then they'd eventually get tired of donating me points :lol:

I'd do it too if the buy in wasn't too much, I'm still not that great at online poker.

If we do it, it'll be a cutom game with a relatively normal buy in. If you guys are really interested, let's see if we can get a full table (8 players I think) and set a goot date and time we all can play. Let's do this.

IM down with the tournament. and remember guys hold em is a live arcade game. So you have to go where you normaly would purchase "arcade games". But I also think its under "featured downloads".

Its hard waiting for PS3, especially since I may end up getting a 360 anyway, just because online might be better. Its sounding great to me, and things like this are a really great idea. Hopefully Sony will come out with an amazing online interface.
