eSports On The Go: Major League Gaming Announces The Xperia Mobile Gaming ArenaCompetitive gaming on the go is coming thanks to Major League Gaming, Sony Mobile Communications, and Gameloft's Xperia Mobile Gaming Arena (XMGA). The Arena will let gamers compete for thousands of dollars worth of prizes from just about anywhere. The first game to be featured is Gameloft's own first-person shooter Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation.

“For Gameloft, partnering with strong brands such as the MLG and Sony Mobile Communications to promote a new age of competitive mobile gaming is a very exciting time, “ said Baudouin Corman, vice president of publishing in the Americas at Gameloft. “Given the millions of gamers that have participated in competitions online and via console over the years, there’s a great future for the online multiplayer experience with the Xperia Mobile Gaming Arena.”

Whenever you play Modern Combat 3, your stats will automatically be updated to the leaderboards once you register for the service at Major League Gaming's mobile portal. Currently, gamers are competing to get the most kills by May 20, 2012. $1,000 will be awarded to first place, $500 to second, and $150 for third. As an incentive to get people to compete using Sony's Xperia Play, anyone who wins using one will get an extra $100.

Some people live and breath competitive gaming. Will you be competing in the XMGA, or would you rather watch a live stream of your favorite games on your phone instead? Let us know in the comments section.
