Halo 4 may not go on sale worldwide until November 6, 2012, but Major League Gaming has announced the game will form part of its Dallas Fall Championship from November 2-4. MLG has now detailed more on tournament itself, which will take place over Saturday 3 to Sunday 4, and takes the form of a four vs four tournament in competition for $40,000 in prizes.

MLG has announced that the competition will be screened in a dedicated tournament area at the event itself, as well as on the organisation's website from Friday November 2 at 5 p.m. CST.

Watching now, it has been great so far.

I don't like it when they host big tournaments for games that haven't been released yet. The competition is basically a farce since it's not open.

Time to get HYPEd for 343's first solo game effort. We'll see if they have what it takes to go the distance.

It makes more sense to assume its open by this little part than it is to assume that its not. Either way, if you don't know much about something, making assumptions in general is kind of ignorant. Look up all the info first before making a statement about it. At least, that's what I do. Unless its in question form like "is this tournament open?"

 

That would have been more understandable.
