Top Streamers Said to Earn $50,000 Per Hour Playing New Games – Kotaku
When I wrote my gaming blog in the far mists of prehistory (1998-2001) and it became popular, I started flying out to game companies to do developer interviews. I paid my own way out of pocket, because I just assumed that was the correct thing to do.
Yeah. About that. (In case it’s not clear, that $50k/hr is direct payola from companies with games being shown.)
