A question that I have had about this year's contest: What happens if one of the finalist is an XBOX360 guy and the other finalist is a PS3 guy. Which console do they use for the championship and doesn't that give one guy the upper hand over the other guy, who might not be as familiar with the controls using a different console's controller?

The million dollar tournament will be played on pc not any console.

ah, thanks. I wasn't aware of that. Since I play the game on PC, I didn't bother to read the official contest rules since I would not be eligible (double-whammy is that I live in Arizona.)

Strange that they would do the tournament on PC while the qualifiers had to play on consoles. Maybe those console people will look at the PC version and go "Wow! This looks awesome! Much better looking than the console version. I need to get this on my PC!" Maybe that was 2k's evil, diabolical plan from the get-go, to promote more sales.
