Video Game League on the Verge. The Cyberathlete Professional League receives a much-needed $45 million cash infusion, a commitment from Intel and exposure from ESPN. But will anybody watch?
We have digital cable. I live in the city where they invented the televised Yule Log. Apparently, some people will watch anything. I understand that the video game industry is bigger than the movie industry. I even understand that video games are fun (though I myself come mostly from the pinball generation).
But a professional league with spectators? Color me “He Hate Me.”
