Turtle Beach hosts Live Xbox One Tournaments at PAX East

Turtle Beach has announced that it will host two tournaments during PAX East, in Boston from April 11 to 13. Major League Gaming (MLG) will hold the playoffs for its Call of Duty: Ghosts league in the Turtle Beach booth. The playoffs will feature the top six teams competing for $15,000 in prizes. The booth will also feature a Killer Instinct tournament, open to all PAX East attendees. Both tournaments will be played on Xbox One, using new XO SEVEN headsets from Turtle Beach. MLG's playoffs at PAX East represent the culmination of a six-week long season among 10 teams in MLG's Call of Duty: Ghosts League. After 180 matches, the top six teams; Complexity, EnVy, Strictly Business, FaZe, Team Kaliber, and Curse LV; will enter the LIVE playoffs. Four of the six teams competing in the playoffs finished in the top eight at the 2014 Call of Duty® Championship, which took place March 30 in Los Angeles, including the newly crowned Call of Duty® World Champion team, Complexity.  The action will be broadcast exclusively on www.MLG.tv and the new MLG app for Xbox 360 beginning Friday, April 11 at 10 a.m. and continuing through the finals on Sunday, April 13.

PAX East attendees can compete in a Killer Instinct tournament featuring the popular one-on-one fighting game exclusive to the Xbox One. Participants will be able to register on-site to play on a first-come, first-served basis. Daily prizes include VIP tickets to MLG Anaheim in June 2014, Ear Force® XO. Seven Xbox One headsets with Killer Instinct plates, and Killer Instinct FightSticks, limited edition copies of the game, and autographed fan books. The tournaments will be played on Xbox One, and players will use Turtle Beach's new XO SEVEN (U.S. MSRP $159.95) headset, which is officially licensed by Microsoft for the Xbox One.

"The Call of Duty: Ghosts tournament is a great opportunity for fans to watch the best professional gamers compete live in a small and exciting setting," said Bob Picunko, Chief Marketing Officer at Turtle Beach. "And the Killer Instinct allows fans to get in on the action playing one of the most exciting new titles on the Xbox One."
