GameSpot is proud to announce "The Controller", a new reality show featuring Battlefield 3. Twelve gamers, guys and girls, the "Pros" and the "Noobs." A seasoned gamer will pair up with a novice for a chance to win as they compete in the dusty "Battle Zone" of So. Cal. But there is a catch: Only the noobs will be allowed to touch the controllers while the professionals coach (or scream) at their teammates from the sidelines.
Starting October 21 on GameSpot's official YouTube channel, the show will bring together the gamers to compete in various challenges both in game and on the field. The show will be an eight-episode miniseries where the six teams will eventually be whittled down to two with the final chance to compete for a $50,000 grand prize. You can expect to see pros like TSquared and Mrs. Violence, along with AyIIIa from Real World Cancun and Chet from Real World Brooklyn, as well as the awesome FreddieW.
GameSpot will also be bringing you daily streams of behind-the scenes videos, thanks to our very own Homer Rabara and Ryan MacDonald. You can join the conversation by following @GameSpot on Twitter or by using #TheController.
