Win Xbox 360s at Trueplayerz!

Plus Halo 2 joins tournament line up

UK Online, the UK's leading broadband ISP, and sponsors of Trueplayerz have added FOUR XBOX 360s to the fantastic prize list on offer at the next two Trueplayerz events; October 23rd and November 20th.

Trueplayerz are also launching a HALO 2 frag fest tournament at the next event where you'll be able to win one of the Xbox 360s on offer. The other Xbox 360 goes to the winner of the Trueplayerz tournament proper.

Each Trueplayerz event offers everyone the chance to play new games, score great prizes (including ton's of games (from Eidos, Capcom, EA, Atari, Konami, Activision, Madcatz, Saitek, Guillemot, Radica, Midway), two one year 8 Mb broadband accounts from UK Online, two Nokia 6681 phones and four iPod Shuffles) and of course win cash for the charity of their choice!

The unique concept behind Trueplayerz is that the winner of each tournament decides which charity receives the proceeds from the event, it's as simple as that.

The tournament is being played out on four big screens plus there will also be loads of game pods for side tournaments and special events. Players can compete on the autumn's top new releases including Burnout Revenge, FIFA 2006, Battlefield 2 (Modern Combat), Capcom Fighting Jam and now Halo2.

Competitors are assigned an hour during which they play a number of rounds on their chosen game to qualify for the finals. All finalists will play off on a mystery game that changes every month to decide who wins the ultimate Trueplayer.

Players win free games, t-shirts and other prizes throughout the tournament plus we have goodie bags for all players including an exclusive TMF iPod cover so you don't need to be a champion to go home with something.

You can pick up flyers in Gamestation stores around Greater London or simply visit
