They are exotic but increasingly popular names: FIFA 18, PES 2018, NBA 2K18, NBA Live 18, Madden NFL 18, F1 2017, UFC 3, Tennis World Tour, Rugby 18 and MLB The Show 18. They are some of the sports video games most recent that shook the market. Soccer leads the sale indexes but it is not the only one that generates impact.
That’s one of the reasons why different sports leagues in the world are getting closer and closer to electronic sports, eSports. The recent news that the Superliga Argentina will have its official championship confirms the current, with the intention of attracting a young audience that no longer consumes so much sport on television.
FIFA VS PES
Negotiations continue with EA Sports (FIFA) and Konami (PES) to define the game, but the tournament will follow the official calendar, there will be online and face-to-face rankings, a draft will be set up to define the representatives of the clubs and the matches ( one against one) will be transmitted via Twich (streaming platform) or YouTube. In addition, it will have its own social networks and a television program to generate content.
The effect crosses all sports. The Formula 1 eSports Series is on its way to its second year with rewards greater than $ 400,000; the NFL has the Madden NFL 18 Club Championship, which distributes more than 550 thousand dollars; The NBA will debut this month with the NBA 2K League, after an online draft with 72 thousand players. Of them, there were 102 that will be divided to represent 17 franchises, receive a salary (between 32 and 35 thousand dollars for six months) and compete for one million dollars.
