Amazon Makes More eSports Moves

Taylor Soper reports in GeekWire: “Amazon continues to invest in eSports, and the company’s latest initiative expands the experience to the types of casual games that many people play on their smartphones.”

“The tech giant on Monday announced the Champions of Fire Invitational, a new eSports tournament it will host via the Amazon Appstore.”

“On Dec. 2 in Las Vegas, 16 top gaming celebrities will play five popular casual mobile games and compete for a cash prize pool of $100,000. The event will be live-streamed on Amazon-owned Twitch, as well as via Amazon Fire TV, Amazon.com, and other social media networks. CBS Sports Network will air a two-hour highlights TV show on Dec. 12.”
