Cowboys New Stadium

Cowboys Stadium Hosted Its First Football Game Saturday, Between Two Guys With PlayStation Controllers

The day Jerry Jones introduced the world to his huge new TV screen, gamers wondered what it'd be like to plug in their PlayStation and have a game 90 feet above the Cowboys Stadium field.

Well, wonder no more. While the stadium opened up to season ticket holders for Saturday's open house, Sony and EA hosted 250 lucky gamers in a Madden NFL 2010 tournament (new additions to this year's game, due out next week, include better graphics and a more easily pissed-off Wade Phillips). A few who stuck around also had the chance to go head-to-head with Rocket Ismail.

More details on the event are over at Unfair Park, but you can check out our photos from the tournament in this slideshow.
