Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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.


Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
