if u look at the teams registered, on www.pspevents.com
it doesnt look like too many teams are playing. i have seen local tournaments draw in way more teams. the only thing psp has going on for them is x-ball.
rookie 5 man 15 teams
novice 5 man 8 teams
rookie 10 man 5 teams
novice 10 man 19 teams
proam 10 man 12 teams
lol you could play novice 10 man end up dead last and still say you placed 5th in the psp LA OPEN
