Newsbrief: Virgin Gaming, a platform enabling users to play popular console games online competitively and win cash prizes, has reached 1 million registered members since the service launched in June 2010.

The Virgin Gaming platform offers free registrations (users can deposit a $20 minimum to compete in cash-prize matches), and allows members to play in tournaments for more than a dozen supported games like Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Electronic Arts' Battlefield 3.

To date, the service has awarded $7 million in prizes to users. Virgin Gaming, a subsidiary of Richard Branson's British conglomerate Virgin Group, says registered users spend an average of 72 minutes per visit logged into its site.
