Overwatch is bringing its team-based shooting to the next PAX.

Next Generation Esports (NGE) announced today that it is partnering with Twitch to bring the finals for its Overwatch Winter Premiere league to the first two days of PAX South, January 27 and January 28. PAX South is a gaming convention taking place in San Antonio, Texas. It includes the Pax Arena, which focuses on esports like Overwatch.

Four teams at PAX South will compete for a $100,000 prize pool in Overwatch’s team-based competition. The event will stream live on Twitch here. Overwatch came out last May, and it has already become one of the most popular games in the esports market, which generates $493 million in revenues annually.

“The Winter Premiere was designed to highlight the best talent of Overwatch in North America,” said Vander Woude, NGE co-founder and chief executive officer, in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “It’s only fitting to bring these all-star teams to the PAX Arena stage, where their effort and talent can be celebrated by an even wider audience.”

Blizzard is creating its own Overwatch League, but NGE is an independent organization. Even as Blizzard takes a direct approach in building Overwatch’s esports future, third-party event organizers will continue to run their own events centered around the game.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
