The Future of Spectator Sports: Video Gamers that got Game?

Sundance DiGiovanni, chief executive officer of Major League Gaming (MLG) recently discussed his company's partnership with IMG for a wider medium distribution to globally expand the brand. The brand? Lets just say that these guys are trying to create the NFL of gaming. Providing a legitimate source of revenue and recognition for couch potato gamers taking up space in parents basements and collecting unemployment checks. Above is a Bloomberg News interview with the CEO of MLG.

As video game releases surpass the revenues of Hollywood blockbuster movies, the convergence of technology is taking fantasy entertainment into the pocket books of the gaming industry. As a result, the evolution of capitalizing on this ever expanding market becomes more and more diverse in its ideas for potential entrepreneur. MLG and its partnership with IMG proves that gaming is more than just fun and games; its serious business!

So if you're the parent or a spouse of some couch suffering loser who can't pay for his/her meal and yet, comes up with $60 for latest shoot'em up game, tell them to start gaming for a living. And if they suck at that, then maybe you throw them out on the street because they're a worthless piece of American mooching crap! Oh yeah, below is our sponsor who allows gamers to compete against each other for real cash.

  1. No Battletoads comments yet? I'm shocked, who buys videogames anymore? It's the same crap over and over again, sports games are the worst, Fifa, NFL, NHL, NBA, I mean, talk about lazy bastards, it's pretty much the same game every year, different cover. When they finally make another great Dragon Ball game, then, maybe then, I'll give these guys some of my money.

    BTW, did you see the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 live tournament on Gamespot? The winner? Some bloated, arrogant, unbelievable fatass, douchebag who wears sunglasses indoors.
