I've seen some live game coverage from some UK shows, it's actually quite boring watching people play...

i have a feeling how they will cover it
since they carry it on direct tv all the time

i also know there are a lot of bleeps and "off color" comments in most of these....

Pro Gaming match to be covered on CBS tomorrow

from the article on /.:

Quote:
The New York Times has an article on a first for pro gamers: network television coverage of a match. Tomorrow at noon EDT CBS Sports will be airing coverage of the World Series of Videogames. Events will include Guitar Hero II, Fight Night and World of Warcraft 3v3 Arena combat. The article explores some of the challenges of making gaming understandable on television:
Quote:
"The dollars are already quite mainstream. Americans bought about $13 billion worth of video game systems and software last year, more than they spent at the film box office (around $10 billion). Advertisers for Sunday's broadcast include KFC, Intel and the Marines. But for gaming to make it as a major-network TV sport, the big hurdle will be translating a medium that is by its nature meant to be experienced firsthand into a compelling hands-off spectator experience. It is a task that in some ways is no less daunting than that of the early baseball television producers who eventually realized that a camera way out in center field would provide the best view of pitches."
This makes CBS the first broadcast network in the US to cover a video game tournament as a sporting event.
