This may be a surprise to see that Activision is pushing a console as a platform to promote competitive gaming, especially with a first person based game that has a very large fanbase on PC. But hey! $1 Million is a lot of money. This is the 5th Call of Duty championship but isn’t the only game to pull such a large prize pool. Valve’s “The International” is also in the news for the same reason, involving DOTA 2.
