From the “what am I missing here department” comes this late-breaking news nugget: ESPN is adding competitive video game coverage to its broadcast schedule.
Is there anything worse than sitting in a room watching someone else play a video game? Now we’re supposed to watch someone somewhere else play?
Videogame bloggers seem to like the idea. Said the Sports Video Digest…
You know, its good to see ESPN showing video games some love…I mean, they show love to a lot of other fringe sports (strongest man, lumberjack events, pool competitons, etc.) so why not video games? I would be willing to bet that more people are playing X-Box 360 than participating in a hot dog eating contest anyway (although we all love Joey Chestnutt, right?)
