Updated: Prizing for Mortal Kombat increased to $33,400 at Winter Championships, MLG raises $13 million for tournaments Updated: MLG has stated on their Twitter that the prizing for Mortal Kombat at MLG's Winter Championships has been increased to $33,400. The 1st place winner will now be awarded $12,000.

VentureBeat.com is reporting that Major League Gaming (MLG) has amassed $13 million in funds for running video game tournaments played through the web and at live events.

Major League Gaming has recently received some spotlight in our community for picking up Soul Calibur 5, King of Fighters 13 and Mortal Kombat 9, and collectively offering over $50,000 in prize money at the upcoming MLG Winter Championships Columbus, being held on March 23 - 25 in Ohio.

The $13 million announcement is potentially very good news for our community, as it means MLG has quite a bit of prize money to throw at players, and if the upcoming fighting game tournaments are successful for them, hopefully they'll continue to support the community's efforts.

Kusoru explains not wanting to return to U.S., amount of prize money won at Final Round mentioned

Kusoru explains not wanting to return to U.S., amount of prize money won at Final Round mentioned Owner of ArcadeUFO, Ryan "Fubarduck" Harvey, provided some insight from Final Round XV Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament winner, Kusoru, as to why he wouldn't be returning to the U.S. to compete.

Ryan Harvey: Most important announcement by Kusoru today: His reason for not wanting to come back isn't the players, although that did bother him, but because traveling to America is really tiring, so far away and the trip really took a lot out of him. He's considering EVO.

He said he would consider coming to EVO if only he had a sponsor...hint hint... Oh, and he would love to fly first class ;)

He just won Final Round XV and is asking for sponsorships and free hand outs? What the [heck]? — Min7yfr3sh

Ryan Harvey: So I guess you could easily afford $2,000+ trips as a student? Kusoru only won about $1,500 at Final Round by the way.

Street Fighter X Tekken infinite combo video from Desk

Desk added this note on his latest discovery.

It's totally legit!.. but maybe not too practical. Done in standard 2on2 vs. (not scramble mode). Odd that the only thing that doesn't scale is your opponents meter gain.
