Updated: Wednesday, January 14, 2015

Once again, we visited the Red Bull headquarters in Santa Monica, this time for an in-depth conversation with industry leaders about the evolution of gaming into a spectator experience. What did the experts think?


"Social gaming and e-sports are the evolution of an arcade."
Andy Swanson, Twitch


"It's the sport of the digital generation."
Craig Levine, ESL


Live gaming will continue to be a real sport as long as great games are created and fans can experience those interactive games in an entertaining, stadium experience.
