Virgin Gaming Sponsoring Sony Game Tournament

You may have heard about the newly reformed Virgin Gaming that is to be revealed by Richard Branson at E3 this year. As it turns out Virgin Gaming is already beginning to make an appearance before actually being officially revealed.

Included in Canadian copies of ModNation Racers is an advertisement for a competition sponsored by and Virgin Gaming. It's an online competition for players to race and win a trip to Las Vegas or consolation prizes that include a Bravia TV and PSP systems. There is also a spot right on the Virgin Gaming Site for the contest.

The odd thing is that Virgin Gaming is a sponsor on a Sony first party title. What could this mean about Virgin Gaming? Will they be a Sony exclusive developer, or is this just a show of good faith between developers? Either way, more information should be revealed as E3 hits in the near future.
