Will celebrity involvement contribute to the growth of eSports?

MWEB GameZone writes: "For eSports to become fully recognized as a real sport and an entertainment option to watch or participate in, the mainstream media has to get involved in a big way.

One of the ways to pique the interest of mainstream media is through the involvement of celebrities to show their interest and participation."

The story is too old to be commented.

I have to think that it could only help. More mainstream recognition, the better.

Yeh definitely. Seeing a celeb you like playing something might definitely pique the interest of non-gamers.

Cant' hurt, or can it?

Well the flip-side here is that it could hurt if a big celebrity tells the world how terrible their experience with eSports was. Hopefully that wont happen or wont have a big affect.

Of course, there's always the chance of some weird celebrity gaming reality show...
