Those heading to PAX 2009 next weekend will have the option to compete with others in Tekken 6
as Namco is holding daily tournaments during the three day show. To compete all you need to do is head over to Namco's booth and sign-up (starting at 10AM) and then show up for the competition which is being held from 1:00 -4:00 PM daily with the finals happening after 5:00 PM. Namco isn't saying what the prizes are right now but I'm guessing its' going to be something snazzy, plus you'll be one of the first people to check out the game before it goes on sale at the end of October.

More about TEKKEN 6
A must-have for fighting aficionados, TEKKEN 6 sees the return of many familiar faces and new characters to create the largest line-up in franchise history. Adding to the already robust gaming experience, dynamic and destructible environments will enable players to punch their enemies through concrete walls or kick them through floors to open a whole new battleground. Players can also take the battle online for classic match-ups and to compete for world domination. Furthermore, an impressive real-time motion blur effect has been implemented to provide the richest visuals the series has ever seen.
Featuring a new Scenario Campaign mode, players are introduced to a unique hybrid control system that combines conventional fighting game controls with free movement. This system allows them to progress through the story and mow down hordes of enemies while still enjoying fighting game action either alone or cooperatively online. For the first time in the series, players will have an arsenal of staffs, machine guns, flame throwers, and even giant robots at their disposal.
