July 15, 2006 at 8:53 am (Games, Media)

DirectTV and IGN have teamed up with Microsoft and a bunch of other companies to put together a new pro-gaming series that launches next year.

The Championship Gaming Series is a new professional gaming league that will air competitions exclusively on DirectTV.

Next weekend DirectTV and company will take over a 16,000-square-foot airplane hanger at the former Treasure Island Naval Base in San Francisco and turn it into an indoor video game arena.

Production company A. Smith & Co. will use 16 HD cameras to film the two-day invitational event. No word on how the competitors for the event were chosen, but they will be playing a variety of games including Battlefield 2, Project Gotham Racing, Halo 2, Dead or Alive 4 and Counter-Strike 1.6.
