Resistance PSP Tournament Offers $25,000 in Prizes

With Sony Bend's Resistance: Retribution (PSP) now at North American retailers, publisher Sony Computer Entertainment has paired with community site Global Gaming to throw an online multiplayer tournament for the portable third-person shooter. nope

Registration opens today and runs until May 10, 2009. Two ladders, 2v2 and 4v4, are open. Combined, the two brackets offer over $25,000 in prizes for U.S. gamers.

The actual tournament portion begins on April 8, with winners declared May 31. Oddly, some of the prizes include a PSP--something you'd think participants in a tournament for a PSP game would already have. The listed prizes follow below:
