Today's introduction of the Professional Video Game League in Canada makes me think it somewhat hokey, but nice in terms of bringing some legitimacy to the industry. For those of you who don't know, in Asia, Korea especially, top pro gamers are like rockstars there. They're known, they get endorsements, and are treated well. I'm not actually sure Canada's ready for that.
So Major League Gaming is coming and from the press release: "The MLG Canadian Open will be held Friday, November 2nd – Sunday, November 4th, 2007 at Toronto's Direct Energy Centre. It will serve as a marquee event within the larger Gaming and Digital Lifestyle show that is expected to attract over 25,000 core gamers and technology enthusiasts during the weekend."
