Report: The eSports Industry Is Estimated To Be Worth $600 Million,

There’s big money in eSports ,especially with Riot Games’ League Of Legends and it’s only getting bigger. In 2016, the winner LoL team, South Korea’s SK Telecom T1,walked away from the tournament with a $2,680,000 purse split between its seven members. Second place also received a nice payday: A cool $1,005,000, also split seven ways.With big prize money and huge, digital viewership online, the boom of eSports is getting all sorts of attention from investors looking for the next big thing. After attending the biz-eSports Summit in Los Angeles — a conference about the monetization of the eSports industry — one investment firm, Pacific Crest Securities, walked away with an estimate on just how big competitive online gaming is going to be. In 2017 alone, it estimates the entire industry to be worth $600 million. It could be even bigger when Blizzard Entertainment — maker of Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft — launches Overwatch League later this year:

Industry growth continues to be dynamic, but eSports is still early. Nearly 200 million people watch eSports regularly, which is likely to fuel at least about 50% year-over-year growth in the eSports market to about $600 million in 2017, according to NewZoo. The significant increase in interest and investment capital, combined with the launch of the Overwatch League, could accelerate that growth rate in 2018. Although eSports is still a frontier market, we believe its high growth, large audience and attractive demographics warrant investor attention.

The $600m valuation is up from a Goldman Sach’s estimate last year at $500m, noting 22% growth in the space, according to a Business Insider report:

Financial institutions are starting to take notice. Goldman Sachs valued eSports at $500 million in 2016 and expects the market will grow at 22% annually compounded over the next three years into a more than $1 billion opportunity.

And industry statistics are already backing this valuation and demonstrating the potential for massive earnings. To illustrate the market value, market growth, and potential earnings for eSports, consider Swedish media company Modern Times Group’s $87 million acquisition of Turtle Entertainment, the holding company for ESL. YouTube has made its biggest eSports investment to date by signing a multiyear broadcasting deal with Faceit to stream the latter’s Esports Championship Series. And the NBA will launch its own eSports league in 2018.

E3 2017: ACE Combat 7 Soars Higher

E3 2017 kicks off last week at the Los Angeles Convention Center.Bandai Namco released its E3 2017 trailer for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unkwonn on Friday and it looks like an updated Top Gun, but with princesses. Strap yourself into one of the numerous sophisticated aircrafts and prepare to do acrobatic battle with your flying foes. The trailer focuses on the single-player campaign, but Ace Combat 7 will offer both online and local multiplayer modes.
       
Ace Combat 7 is the latest chapter of the long-running dogfighting series, and Kazutoki Kono, producer of Ace Combat 7 and head of the Project Aces team, told GameSpot that they plan to go back to the game’s roots that made it popular. “Now we want to listen to the users’ voice more closely so we can get back to the roots of the series: Strangereal.” That means that they are going back to the Strangereal universe where a conflict between the Osean Federation and the Kingdom of Erusea erupts.

The game was initially scheduled to released at the end of this year, but it has since been delayed to 2018. Kono explained that the delay was necessary to ensure that Project Aces “achieve[s] the vision” it has for the game. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unkwonn will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will feature VR support.

Hip Hop Legends De La Soul Release New Music

When De La Soul dropped their album and the Anonymous Nobody last year, the number of A-list featured artists was something of a tribute to the respect the group has among peers across genre and age brackets. It was the the successful way those guests (including Snoop, Jill Scott, David Byrne, Damon Albarn, and more) were integrated into De La’s world and aesthetic, however, that spoke to the high level of artistry of all involved. The trio has now released a new single, “Drawn,” the collaboration with Little Dragon, is phenomenal ! Check out the incredible news music video below:

Rap Mogul Eminem Surprised Graduating Flint High School Seniors With Beats By Dre Headphones & Motivational Speech

Eminem has been busy of late, with many philanthropic endeavors. Now, "The Real Slim Shady" just helped the graduating seniors of Flint, Michigan high schools Flint Northwestern, Flint Southwestern and Flint Accelerated Learning Academy.During the students’ graduation ceremony, held Tuesday evening at the Dort Event Center, seniors were caught completely off-guard when Eminem’s voice suddenly boomed over the PA system delivering a quick congratulatory speech to the new graduates.

“What’s up Class of 2017? This is Eminem. I just want to say congratulations to the graduating seniors of Flint Northwestern, Flint Southwestern and Flint Accelerated Learning Academy. Congrats to all your guys’ hard work, man. You earned this moment,” he told the students.

Then to top that surprise off Eminem’s foundation gave all 230-plus graduating seniors their own new set of Beats by Dre headphones.

                                      
Reports MLive

Flint Northwestern senior Betty Davis, 18, was surprised after learning about the headphones being handed out to all the graduates.

“I thought he was just going to give his speech on the speaker and it just was going to be that,” she said. “I greatly appreciate Eminem for giving out like he did. He didn’t have to and the fact that he can see so much potential in Flint and Flint students, it just makes the gift so much more worth keeping.”

Eminem and his Marshall Mathers Foundation reached out to the school district with the idea, according to Flint schools Superintendent Bilal Tawwab.

“I commend him for being very genuine, not really looking for all the attention, media hype, just really doing something for kids,” Tawwab said. “We’re really excited to be able to surprise them this evening (with the gift).”

It’s the second giveaway by the rapper and his foundation to Flint schools, following more than 240 backpacks stuffed with supplies given away in August 2016 to Freeman Elementary students.
