Good luck to all those eligible. Playing against some of the team members was a great thing that I and some of the other fan site webmasters got to experience shortly before the game was released back in April, now you too can have that same opportunity.

I just read the e-mail I got from Rockstar, it sucks that PS3 owners can't play them. Then again, Sony probably wouldn't want to give away any prizes, because they're tight arses. *Sigh* Back to COD4 then.
