50 Cent challenges YOU

Rapper challenges you to beat him at his own game, Blood in the Sand

50 Cent has thrown down the gauntlet to gamers, challenging would-be punters to take him on at his own game, 50 Cent: Blood in the Sand. Apparently, he's quite good.

"I actually had the opportunity to play it, and I'm pretty good at it," the rap superstar told MTV UK in an interview. "If anybody out there wants to create a challenge or wants to bet some money online, we could play the game right now."


Obviously he couldn't take you on right now, because the game, now being published by THQ, isn't out until early next year.

"I'm happy with the video game," Fiddy added. "The actual aesthetics, the scenery, was inspired by [Leonardo Dicaprio film 'Blood Diamond'] on some levels. I actually went to Los Angeles to meet with some of the programmers, and we sat down. They showed me some options and some things that they had already developed.

"I told them this idea that I thought would be cool and to merge the idea into what they already had, and it worked out."

If you're reading THQ: Please give us an interview with this man.
