Gaming: The Revolution will be Televised
Video games are undergoing an incredible upsurge in popularity and appeal recently. Like Mario after ingesting an Invincible Starman, they’ve speed-warped their way from screen to screen. Games moved from arcades into homes thanks to consoles and online versions. They then went on the road with Gameboy and future generations of portable devices. Now they are moving into movie theaters and arenas where competitive gaming events are being held. Five major league gaming leagues that have started up recently: Championship Gaming Series, Cyberathlete Professional League, Major Gaming League, World Cyber Games, and World Series of Video Games. The Championship Gaming Series (CGS) events are even being broadcast on cable networks.
