As promised, Overwatch is now live, offering the worldwide launch of Blizzard's new multiplayer shooter. In a couple of related tidbits, PCGamesN has a confirmation that the game's loot boxes will be offered for sale via microtransaction. They also note that in a Facebook Q&A, Jeff Kaplan confirmed that competitive mode will be added by an upcoming update they hope to release by the end of the month. You can keep an eye on the Overwatch website for more details.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but does EVERY game need a super detailed progression systems now? I don't ever recall playing Quake, Unreal Tournament, Day of Defeat, Counter-Strike or Tribes for progression. People just played them because they had fun doing so...

This. I refuse to play recent PvP shooters BECAUSE OF the progression. Frankly, I loathe that kind of progression in any PvP game, but especially in FPS, because I know for a fact that it is completely unnecessary. We spent hundreds or thousands of hours on old-school shooters with no progression, as you said, because they were fun. To me, if you have to tack on progression to keep people playing, then it's because your game sucked to begin with, and why the frak would I want to play that game anyway?
