PlayStation Tournaments on PS5 has finally released today after being in three months of beta testing. The first official PlayStation Tournaments on the console will feature NBA 2K23, FIFA 23, and Guilty Gear Strive. Better yet, Sony has announced a Win-A-Thon tournament that lasts from December 1 to January 31 on PS4 and PS5, where players can win cash, a PS5 console, a DualSense Edge wireless controller, and a Pulse 3D wireless headset.
How to enter PlayStation Tournaments Win-A-Thon event
Players can sign up for tournaments in the PlayStation Win-A-Thon event by selecting specially marked cards on their PS5 console or by launching the Control Center while playing a supported game. On PS4, you will need to go to the Events tab and determine which tournaments are eligible. You will also need a PS Plus membership, an internet connection (of course), and own the appropriate console version of the game at hand.
Those who rack up the most wins on the Win-A-Thon leaderboards by the end of January will receive prizes based on their placement. For instance, those who place in the Top 12 for the FIFA 23 tournament on PS5 will receive a DualSense Edge wireless controller. Those who place in the Top 250 will receive at least some prize, like a Pulse 3D Headset or cash ($50 or $20 depending on ranking). PS4 players will even be able to snag a PS5 console.
The launch of PlayStation Tournaments on PS5 also comes with a new bracket capping feature, more tournaments, a new UI, and real-time results. It also coincides with a new PlayStation Tournaments Discord server which you can join here.
