So what are eSports? As described by Wikipedia:
Electronic sports (or esports) is a term for organized video game competitions, especially between professionals.
Yes, people are actually paid to play video games. It’s a big business and getting bigger. Companies like Coke, TwitchTV and others are seeing the potential here. We even have our own eSports team, Team Empire, which we sponsor because we know the importance of gaming not only for business but also for entertainment.
In a digital age like ours, sports can no longer be defined as just something you do with a ball, glove, racquet and a pack of allergy pills. The World Series of Poker paved a good path for non-traditional entertainment activities such as video games. When eSports events such as MLG (Major League Gaming) can boast numbers such as 20K attendees and 35 million views online – it’s not something to take lightly.
As a professional gamer, just like any other sport, it’s all about performance. The same can be said about the hard drive you choose to have in your gaming rig. That’s why we created the Seagate Desktop SSHD – the perfect drive for gamers that combines SSD speed with HDD capacity at a price that’ll still allow you to buy the latest iteration of Call of Duty.
With up to 4TB of capacity, the Seagate Desktop SSHD performs up to 4x faster than the boring, old 7200 RPM desktop HDD’s of yesteryear. This gives you a faster performance to keep you at the top of your game and one step closer to eSports dominance.
So why does eSports matter? It will dominate entertainment, it catches the eyes of big business so they can get products in front of an influential audience and it’s just a lot of fun. Three reasons why you need to give it a closer look. Just like price, capacity and speed are three reasons why you need to give Seagate Desktop SSHD a look too.
So, how many words is that? 🙂
