The official Quakecon site has word that the upcoming Quakecon 2004 will feature a 128 player Doom3 Tournament. Players will be competing for some of the $150,000 in fabulous cash and prizes (except for the prizes) donated by NVIDIA. You can also win a Doom 3 related prize (though the site won't say what they are, perhaps an autographed box?), but you've got to be in it to win it, as they say. Registration begins on July 11th at Quakecon.org. Purely speculation now, of course, but this perhaps means that Doom 3 will in fact GO GOLD sometime before the previously projected August 6th release date since the tourny will start on the 12th, which is also the first day of Quakecon.
