<i>60 Minutes</i> scores Fatal1ty

Pro gamer and World Cyber Games champ will be profiled on this Sunday's show.


Last time 60 Minutes tackled the subject of gaming, it was with a story linking the murder of three police officers with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that featured antigaming crusader Jack Thompson. This coming Sunday, the venerable CBS news magazine will run a much less controversial piece on professional gaming. Its subject will be professional gaming in general, and PC shooter champion Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel in particular. It will also feature footage of the most recent World Cyber Games championship in Singapore, which 55,000 people attended. 60 Minutes airs at 7 p.m. EST/PST and 6 p.m. CST.
