Special Activities

  • Pre-order the frankly awesome, brand new MLG Mad Catz Xbox 360 Controller! We've been waiting for this to come out for ages, and now you can finally try it out. We'll have some in the venue for you to mess around with, and you can pre-order them on Amazon.com or right at the Mad Catz booth in the venue.
  • Before you even get to the venue, stop by select Shell Stations in or around Providence and get a free spectator pass when you buy any NOS® drink. Just bring your NOS voucher and proof of purchase to the venue. It’s the perfect deal; you get in for free, and then you have the energy to enjoy it once you’re there.
  • Want to meet LiquidTLO or Str8 Rippin's Tsquared? On the Thursday before the tournament, head to the AT&T store in the Providence Place Mall. Chat with the pros and get special deals on the Xperia™ PLAY. See full details.
  • Visit the MLG booth for an opportunity to meet MLG pro players and personalities, compete in the Call of Duty: Black Ops FFA to win exclusive prizes, and participate in the MLG booth scavenger hunt!  
  • Working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, we're going to grant a wish for nine year old Austin, who is battling a brain tumor. On Friday, November 18 at 4:15pm, he'll be playing in a Call of Duty: Black Ops Expo match with New England Patriots Running Back Stevan Ridley and a host of Black Ops pro players.
  • Show everyone what youv'e got and compete for a spot in the Finals of the BIC® Flex4® FFA 2011! The Top 3 from the Providence Event will go up against the five Regular Season Elite winners for the grand prize of $4,000!
  • BIC® will also be running a text-to-win promotion with a variety of swag as prizes—including an ASTRO A40 Audio System.
  • Stop by the PlayStation Compound to get your hands on the PlayStation® Vita and play Uncharted 3, Gran Turismo 5, and Starhawk.   Check out the PlayStation® Move Sharp Shooter and see the new 3D Monitor with Simulview for yourself (you really have to see this thing to believe it.) While you’re there, you’ll get the chance to play against Call of Duty: Black Ops pros Rambo, Big Tymer, TeePee and Stainville.
  • Demo the NEW Sony Ericsson Xperia™ PLAY 4G, and check out new games like 9mm! If you like what you see (and you will) you can buy it right on-site. You can also compete in mobile gaming competitions for a chance to win your own Xperia™ PLAY 4G.
  • STRIDE will be running challenges all weekend long, and if you win, you’ll get autographs from pro players LiquidTyler and Ogre2.
  • Get free Dr Pepper all weekend long and enter the text-to-win promotion for a bunch of prizes, including a chance to meet the Dr Pepper Girls. And you'll also get the chance to try out the all-new Dr Pepper 10.
  • Get yourself an MLG Vault from CALIBUR11; it’s everything your Xbox 360 Slim ever wanted. We'll also have specially-made red and blue MLG Vault masks- which are only available for a limited time. And while you're in the Calibur booth, you can meet Gears of War 2 Champs Terror and JRibs, who'll be challenging spectators to GoW3 free play. 
  • Got a free moment? Play a variety of games on Alienware gaming stations all throughout the venue.
  • Race Parrot AR.Drones in an obstacle course against MLG pros! Trust us; whether you win or lose, this will be hilarious.
