Sony jumps into eSports with 'PlayStation Tournaments'

Test your NBA 2K17 skills for a chance at prize packs and PS gear.

 

 

 

How good of an NBA 2K17 player do you think you really are? Well, you're about to find out because on Thursday, Sony announced that it is teaming up with the ESL gaming network and hosting a month-long digital basketball tournament.

 

The PlayStation Tournament, as it's being called, will run from October 27th through November 26th with "Major Cup rounds" every Saturday. And since the real NBA season is kicking off, the Tournament will be based on NBA 2K17. If you manage to be one of the top three players at the end of the tourney, you'll score a prize pack with stuff like PlayStation Gear and controllers, plus bragging rights.

 

To participate, you're going to need a copy of the game (duh), a PlayStation Plus subscription and an ESL account. You will need to register for the tournament beforehand at ESL but once you do, you'll be automatically prompted when your time to compete comes. There's no word on how large of a player pool this tournament will have but the matches will be 1-on-1. Sony is reportedly looking to expand the scope and playstyle variety of these tournaments moving forward.

 

This isn't the first time that a console maker has waded into the tournament pool. Microsoft unveiled its Xbox Live Tournament Platform back in March at GDC, which enables developers to create their own game tournaments using Xbox Live. FaceIT and ESL have both already signed on to use the platform for their upcoming tournaments. What's more, games like Halo and Destiny have already taken advantage of the platform to create their own miniature leagues.
