A recent interview was held on Digital Revolution with Satya Nadella and Mukesh Ambani. The two individuals are considered to be the elites of Asia and the bringers of technological change into Indian soil. The business typhoon Mukesh has been known for his vision for persistence and success for his business endeavors.
Following a few warm words for Nadella, he goes on to discuss the commitment of running industries in India. He talks of securing their Perseverance on basis of this Tech.
“Progress hinges on Technology”, were the words by Mukesh, the Business giant. He further discussed how the next big thing could end up being the one thing that’s most neglected in India: E-Sports.
India’s advancements in its line of handling technology has given a path that could lead to a grand future for communication and for E-sports. A country of over 1.3 billion people, it gives one fifth the population of the entire world. Compare that to a gaming boom that stretches far and wide to all corners and it would be comparable to a capable stepping for the future of E-sports in general.
PUBG Mobile has dug it’s roots so deep in the country that it has affected even the law. There was a time that it had become so addictive to the general young populous that it was banned. There have been reports of the police confiscating mobiles on the basis that they were running PUBG, a controversial topic. This has been given much attention by the media. Video games are still considered by many in the country to be only as a part of leisure. This acts like an invisible wall that holds the growth of video games as a means of income.
What this does procure, is that social multiplayer is booming. A survey portrays 62 percent of the general populous has played PUBG at some point. More than 90 percent know about the game. Look at that with the total population at hand, and the numbers seem global rather than national.
Mukesh Ambani, known as the wealthiest man of Asia and a big businessman, gives his own insight of what online-gaming could be for India, and what India could be for E-sports. India’s culture and the Film Industry are known to be landmarks that give the largest revenues of the country, all on the basis of popularity. There can be a case that if E-sports, grows to be as big as the film industry, if not larger, it shall be a full fledged grown one with a strong landmark in marketing.
Mukesh Ambani hails E-sports in the same manner. It is capable of reaching great heights, if caressed in the right manner by both the officials and the sustaining body of organizations.
The typhoon sets a high standard for how gaming is looked upon and how it could procure business and various other industries as a means of layout for themselves and E-sports.
The subject drops to the matter of usability. There is the question that mobiles are almost in the hands of every Indian. The same could not be said about a PC. E-sport’s largest share hinges on the rigs of desktops or PCs for usage. If there is not a link to be seen, it still separately holds true for the following India has shown in gaming in general. Mobile Games are showcased and have various local competitions and are sustaining well.
The PMCO INDIA is one example of a highly successful E-sports competition, with a large fan-base as its supporting ground.
This gives the overview of the capability E-sports could achieve. E-sports organizations such as Team Liquid, Immortals, Fnatic and cloud 9 have looked upon this. They have already chosen Indian rosters for any major E-sports title. There is truth in the economic sufficiency and healthy terms of business that such organizations have opted to make firm roots in India.
The fan-base is not small either. E-sport’s two biggest factors already come into being. Dota 2 and CS-GO are just two instances that have showcased a growth. The India Gaming Show, the leading Tech-base of India, highlights this point. India would take steps of sustaining the Gaming Industry that would bound to be successful.
E-sports is only to grow past this point in India. Mukesh seems confident in his theory that India’s Entrepreneurship shall strive further if they look upon this chance. Newest international events have found much success in the past few months. Examples are such as the ESL One Mumbai and DreamHack Delhi 2019. The organization Fnatic has shown keen support when it expanded officially to India as well.
All this gives a hint to where the future is of E-sports in India.
