Chattycast 57: eSporting Chance

This week on the Chattycast, in honor of The International, we take a look at the current status and immediate future of eSports.

This weekend was The International, the Dota 2 tournament with millions of dollars on the line. Earlier this year, and much to the dismay of certain broadcasters, Heroes of the Dorm brought Blizzard's own MOBA to ESPN. It's no exaggeration to say that eSports has arrived as a major force in the entertainment landscape, but it still has a long way to go.

This week on the Chattycast, we take a look at the current status and immediate future of eSports. How will it grow over the next five years? What's standing in its way? What steps do broadcasters and game publishers need to take now to speed along its progress? What kind of problems could spell doom for its acceptance in the culture at large? What could make it more inviting to outsiders: better casters, clearer visual cues, or something else?
