Overview: eSports

CBS News discovers eSports, reporting on just how big the business has become: “The company that makes League of Legends says that 27 million people watched this year’s championship. To put that into perspective, the World Series, which started later that same week, averaged just under 14 million viewers.”

“Video games now bring in $71 billion in annual revenue — more than the music business, and fast catching up to Hollywood.”
