In addition to using digital cameras to map your face onto your created player's head, Tournament of Champions also supports camera peripherals during play, so you can read opponent's real-life facial reactions to the cards they're dealt or the bets made, commonly called “tells” (but who in their right mind would connect a camera and willingly give that information away?) Online play receives a better boost, now that up to 21 players can participate in a multi-table tournament.
Tournament of Champions is technically considered a budget title, but the Xbox 360 version is expected to sell for $40. The final prices won't be confirmed until the game is released in the fall.
