Pay-per-view pre-Tougeki P4U tournament planned

Nico Nico announced today that it will stream pre-Tougeki 2012 P4U tournament on July 28 (this Saturday) starting from 23:00 JST.

The double elimination tournament will have 8 players who already qualified the Tougeki 2012 Finals. The stream will be pay-per-view however. The net ticket is priced at 300 yen.

It looks like this PPV tournament is Tougeki's idea. And it is very weird. We heard some of the names, but do not really know any of these players. They will also compete anyway in 1 on 1 format, same with this. There is also no indication whether this is offline or online.

This is a blatant move if they really think they can just make money out of a stream of anyone who are good at a popular game. Because style and personality is much more important than being good alone.
