Reality show with video games and grrrls

As hard as it might be to imagine, during the last couple of years, playing videogames has become a profession, and I am not talking about QA guys at gaming studios, I am talking about people playing games and making a pile of money. According to an article on the September issue of EDGE, talented WarCraft and StarCraft gamers in South Korea can make up to $50,000 a year, with the top ten players earning around $200,000 a year.

Looking at these figures definitely gets you thinking, and as the female gamers scene is starting to grow with all girls clans becoming more and more popular, all of a sudden this seems to be quite a viable alternative to a standard job if you have the skills. One girl team in particular is getting their pro-gamer career started in Hollywood style. Les Seuls, a Counter-Strike clan from Danmark and Sweden, has been signed for an American reality TV show called Play Us, that will follow the team on a 12-week gaming tour across the country.

It,Aeos not clear yet when the show will start airing, but if you are already thinking about a career change you might want to check out Play US for updates.
