MWEB will host an Xbox-only Call of Duty: Ghosts competition next weekend (19 & 20 July) in Johannesburg, and it’s open for registration.

There is space for up to 16 teams of four to compete for their share of R10 000 worth of prizes (Kalahari.com vouchers and assorted Red Bull merch) so if you and your Xbox Live buddies work like a well-oiled machine and regularly find yourselves on top of your online competition, you should all definitely consider signing up.

Registration is free, but you will need to get to the venue yourself and bring your Xbox 360, controller, headset, screen and a copy of the game.

If you’re part of a Cape Town based COD team and you’d like to guarantee a spot in the competition, MWEB will give you preferential treatment since you’ll be flying up for the LAN. You just need to tell them you’re coming from Cape Town when you register, provide proof of your planned and paid for travel plans and they will ensure you’re chosen as one of the 16 teams to take part. At least, that’s what the press release we received says.

You’ll need to hurry, though, registrations close on Monday the 14th of July.

Here are the details:

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
