ATLANTA — Beginning Wednesday, thousands of video gamers from across the world will be here in Atlanta.
They are joining forces to celebrate the rapidly growing world of gaming which has already passed the $1 billion mark globally. The name of the big kick off? The city's first-ever E-Sports week!
We got a look at the newest entertainment and gaming venue where it’s going down. What if I told you that 2.6 billion people play video games around the world? Or that 400 million viewers watch and cheer on their favorite gaming teams.
