Call of Duty Joins The X Games

Normally, we'd make a joke along the lines of "which of these doesn't belong" but thanks to ESPN and MLG, now they all go together.

The X Games competition will be hosting a Call of Duty: Ghosts tournament, with MLG's top five teams, along with the top three Call of Duty teams elsewhere, competing for a coveted gold medal.

Major League Gaming CEO Sundance DiGiovanni explained the inclusion of Call of Duty by stating ""The [Call of Duty] subject matter is mature and it's not something that is going to be right for everybody, but there's a huge section of the audience that plays these games. You'll see when these games are released -- one of the main places they are advertised is on the ESPN networks."
