Pro gaming hitting mainstream

CBS is broadcasting the 2007 World Series of Video Games on national network TV on Sunday July 27th at noon EST.

This is the first time a network TV channel is broadcasting a pro video gaming event to the national TV audience. Cable networks have done the same before, but obviously not at this scale.

It'll be interesting to see how the ratings turn out and what the TV coverage will be like.

The broadcast is sure to raise the profile of pro gaming in the national media. Let's see if it has any other positive effects as well.
