Looks like professional Overwatch players in Blizzard's ambitious, upcoming Overwatch League won't have to worry about securing outside income.

Blizzard revealed a handful of details around its premiere Overwatch esports league today, including player compensation and contracts, team roster limits, and when we can expect team rosters to be finalized before the start of the first season later this year.

The Overwatch League will have regular seasons and playoffs and be one of the first esports leagues to tie teams to specific cities, similar to traditional sports leagues like the NBA or MLB. The first seven cities participating in the Overwatch League were announced earlier this month. Read more...

Kanye’s sneakers appear in the most unexpected place: ‘Splatoon 2’

TwitterFacebook

Kanye West's pricey branded sneakers might be unobtainable IRL, but... well... they're actually pretty unobtainable in Splatoon 2 as well. 

But hey! They're in there! Sort of.

You can play dress-up with your Squid Kid in Nintendo's paint-splattered online game, and store inventories rotate every day. Sharp-eyed sneakerheads spotted something familiar on Tuesday in the game's shoe store.

The name isn't right — not exactly — but, for anyone familiar with Mr. West's fashion aspirations, the shoe itself is unmistakable. With the exception of missing laces, these kicks are a spitting image of the Yeezy Boost 750. Read more...
