"You can earn money playing video games. And there are Canadians who are doing it, and doing it well.
The largest video game tournament ever staged in Canada, a stop on the World Series of Video Games (WSVG) tour, will hit Toronto from August 24th to 26th.
And it will bring with it more than US$70,000 in prizes and some of the world's top gamers.
Among them will be Team EG (Evil Geniuses), a top professional gaming team with key Canadian players on board.
Held in conjunction with Fan Expo Canada, about 50,000 people will pass through the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
Gaming is big, and it's getting bigger. Just ask Team EG captain Robert Tyndale. A full time student, he's been playing since he was a kid. Now 22, he staying in the game.
"In the long run, I really honestly see gaming blowing up, there's constantly more and more televised leagues being broadcast around the world. There's always an increase in revenue ... so I just really see it growing and growing."
