The Esports

eSports describes the world of competitive, organized video gaming. Competitors from different leagues or teams face off in the same games that are popular with at-home gamers: Fortnite, League of Legends, Counter-Strike, Call of Duty, Overwatch and Madden NFL, to name a few. These gamers are watched and followed by millions of fans all over the world, who attend live events or tune in on TV or online. Streaming services like Twitch allow viewers to watch as their favorite gamers play in real time, and this is typically where popular gamers build up their fandoms.

Female

While 48% of women in the United States report having played a video game, only 6% identify as gamers, compared to 15% of men who identify as gamers. This rises to 9% among women aged 18–29, compared to 33% of men in that age group. Half of female PC gamers in the U.S. consider themselves to be core or hardcore gamers.

Platform

In most esports leagues that use games like Madden, Injustice, or FIFA the PlayStation 4 is the go-to system. To compete in esports using Sony's machine we'd recommend the PlayStation 4 Pro. There's a reason the PlayStation 4 is the best selling console currently in the market.

Franchise

1. League of Legends. At the top of the list, we have League of Legends (LoL) made by Riot Games in 2009. League is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, similar to Dota 2.

By the end of 2019, the global gaming market is estimated to be worth $152 billion, with 45% of that, $68.5 billion, coming directly from mobile games. With this tremendous growth (10.2% YoY to be precise) has come a flurry of investments and acquisitions, everyone wanting a cut of the pie.
