Konsole Kingz Partners with 2K Sports for the NBA® 2K8 High Risers Tournament

Konsole Kingz, a leading destination of multimedia content revolving around celebrity gamers and the urban gamer lifestyle, in partnership with 2K Sports, announced today it will be hosting the NBA® 2K8 High Risers Tournament on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace. Scheduled to kick off on March 2nd, participation in the tournament is free and involves two separate competitions, each with its own set of prizes. To compete, participants are required to have 2K Sports' NBA 2K8 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and access to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace lobby.

The High Risers Qualifying Tournament

Limited to the first 225 entries, the NBA 2K8 tournament pits team versus team, as the participants will be split into brackets, and everyone will need to shoot, dunk, board, dish, and steal their way to the finals. The winner will receive an exclusive Halo®3 Zune®.

The High Risers Slam Dunk Main Event

The top 16 of the High Risers Qualifying Tournament will automatically be entered in the High Risers Slam Dunk Main Event. This tournament will be voted on by the public, as all dunks are submitted via 2K8 ReelMaker. The public will vote until it is down to the final 4. Special guest judges will then decide which of the finalists the ultimate High Riser is, and award them with a brand new LCD HDTV.

NBA 2K8, rated E for Everyone by the ESRB, is available in stores now, and can be purchased for Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.
