    I'm not one of you, I'm not one of you, I'm not one of you. I don't like Overwatch! *FLAME FLAME FLAME* ;)

    But it's nice to see Musk excited for one of our mere mortal products.

    I actually didn't buy Overwatch and only played like 2 matches during that open beta weekend. I really just mean he's a gamer and uses the best platform of course.

    I could just imagine Elon Musk calling up Mark Zukerberg, Peter Thiel and Larry Page for a game of Overwatch. They like to invite Tim Cook but the game is not available on Mac.
