Comic-Con 08: Enter the Metal Gear Online tournament, possibly win money ‘n swag

Konami has partnered with MLG to hold a Metal Gear Online tournament at this year’s Comic-Con. If that sounds like something you would like to be a part of, head on over to the Konami booth (#5213) in the exhibitors hall to register for the event.

Whether you win some killer prizes (1st place: MGS4 PS3 bundle, poster, $1000) or not, it’s okay. Hideo Kojima will be signing autographs in the tourny room until the competition starts up.
