China building world's first video game stadium

5 replies 119 views Edited Apr 26, 2014

E-sports are on the rise! I recently found this article and was both pleased and confused... given China's history in relation to gaming. Looks live they've made a complete 180.

 

 

China is getting serious about eSports.

Located in the country's Guangdong province and off the coast of gambling paradise Macau, Hengqin Island will play host to a 15,000 seat arena designed specifically for competitive video game events.

I secretly hope that the only games that get played there are sports simulation games.

Hah, well judging from the imagery and what I know of pro gaming. League of Legends will likely be one of the main games

Not really a surprise E-sports are much larger in China than other countries.
