nintendogTV.jpgAmerican digital television network DIRECTV will feature video game tournament coverage on its upcoming "Massive Gaming League" planned for launch this year. According to an official announcement by DIRECTV Inc., the League will use "new technology" allowing in-game cameras to capture the action, which will be presented like a traditional sporting event. Additionally, "Stories of the competitors will be told via interviews and features, complemented with coverage of their exploits in actual competition," meaning that American star gamers may soon enjoy a similar status to their exalted Asian counterparts. So far no games have been announced as the subject of competitive coverage, but I'm looking forward to a no-holds-barred cage-match of Nintendogs. Two dogs enter, one dog leaves!
