Newsbrief: Sports and eSports are about to inch a little bit closer, as Major League Gaming and ESPN's X Games partner together for a shared event in Austin, Texas this June. Participants in the MLG Call of Duty: Ghosts three-day invitational held alongside the regional X Games Circuit of The Americas event will get X Games medals; attendance to the Call of Duty tournament will be open to everyone who has a ticket for the X Games event.

The event is "presented by Xbox," according to the press release, and the tournament will be played exclusively on Xbox One consoles.
