Ultimate Gamers Showdown Madden Tournament: LA

IMG_0261If you remember, last week we reported about Best Buys Ultimate Gamers Showdown Madden Tournament. The winner of each tournament in different cities would win $1000 Best Buy gift card as well as qualify for the finals in Dallas, Texas, at the AT&T Stadium to win another $1,500 gift card. The past Wednesday was the Los Angeles tournament and we went to check it out. All 64 slots of the tournament filled quickly along with a waiting list.

Each player had their own style and various teams were used through the night. We got to see teams like the 49ers, Dolphins, Chargers, Eagles, Packers, Broncos, and the Chiefs to name a few. But it wasn’t all just about Madden, even Steve Blake & Jordan Hill from the Los Angeles Lakers came out to sign some autographs and play a little Madden. We were able to talk a little gaming with Jordan Hill; you can watch that video and look at some pictures of the tournament below. The event also had giveaways with such prizes as Best Buy gift cards, Sony Bravia HDTVs, PlayStation 4s, and Xbox Ones. Louie G from Big Boys Neighborhood on Power 106 was keeping gamers going until the end.

At the end of the tournament we had Tyrone “T.O.” Owens from Pasadena, CA, claim victory, allowing him to move on to the finals in Dallas, Texas on December 16th. Congratulations Tyrone!
