The worlds FIRST EVER Xbox one Killer Instinct fighting game tournament.

Not only that, but we will also have four, YES, FOUR, Madcatz TE Round 2 Fight Sticks available for use during the tournament and the weekend.

With the imminent release of the Xbox One, we have been given the opportunity to showcase one of it’s launch day titles, Killer Instinct.

For those familiar with the original games, you have a lot to look forward to. With improved graphics and games system, you will not be disappointed.

For you younger generation, this game is an excellent starting point to begin your journey into the FGC (Fighting Games Community). Easy to pick up controls, yet hard to master combo systems, you will be hooked from the first round.

Thanks to Xbox One, we will be running a 2 day, 32 man bracket, double elimination tournament.

Located at the Adversity Gaming booth, who will be running casual Black Ops 2 and Halo games for all to enjoy, we will be running the tournament over both days, with Saturday being the main tournament and Sunday being the top 8 players

battling it out for prizes and the undying GLORY of being the FIRST EVER PERSON IN THE WORLD TO WIN AN XBOX ONE KILLER INSTINCT TOURNAMENT!!

Anyone who is interested, head over to and register up to the site. Sign up in the Killer Instinct registrations thread and turn up on Saturday.

Alternatively we will also be taking registrations on the day from opening until 11am. The tournament will begin at 11.30am SHARP.
