The Director of International Marketing of ASTRO Gaming, Walter Duccini, had this to say on their recent involvement with DreamHack, and helping support console eSports around the globe.
At ASTRO, we are always looking for ways to advance eSports and their integrations on a global level. We’ve watched for years as DreamHack has helped to define a new era of awareness and acceptance of the digital lifestyle and embraced eSports during its infancy. ASTRO is extremely proud to help support the new integration of console eSports within DreamHack, and are excited to see it grow into a cornerstone of the events in the future.
