Here’s something I didn’t know was going on out there….. this guy is getting hundreds of thousands of dollars to be a professional video game player.
Game Boy – BusinessWeek
Unbeknownst to almost everyone over 30, professional game playing is becoming a very big deal. There are worldwide tours with stops from Rio de Janeiro to Istanbul. Celebrity players are hounded for autographs and compete for high-stakes prizes. At the CPL World Tour Grand Finals in New York in November, players will compete for a total of $500,000 in cash.
I’m wondering if there might be a future of moneymaking in being a professional blogging athlete? Wishful thinking.
