    Hey I'm good at stuff too, pay me!

    Really though, what do you expect to get sponsored for?

    Join AA. They'll assign you a sponsor.

    Getting sponsored for uploading videos and getting known

    I'm not even sure they do that. I think you are SOL.

    Getting paid to be good at video games? That would be awesome!
    1) You would have to be really good, like one of the best in the world.
    2) It would have to be a game that was insanely popular, everywhere
    (sad trombone)

    But yes, you could get "famous" by posting videos of your awesome Rock Band feats, and then with a lot of self-promoting and a ton of luck you might be able to parlay that into some sort of modest revenue stream. Technically, the odds of that happening are better than winning Powerball tonight. The odds are surely better still if you put your enthusiasm and willingness to work hard into a more traditional field of employment.

    stream a lot, put lots of stuff on youtube, see if any advertisers want their ads in your streams/videos.
    getting paid for being good at music games pretty much stopped after Guitar Hero 3

    I'd love to see a "where are they now?" special on the people who were good enough at GH to sell ads on their videos. Are they still playing the game (or, better yet, our game), just for fun? Are they working real jobs now? Did they try to (or maybe even succeed at) using a similar model once the music game money dried up?

    Sadly, pretty much the only people who get paid for being professional gamers these days put a bunch of unnecessary Xs and intentional misspellings in their Gamertag and quickscope in CoD.

    Actually, my boyfriend made some money with Guitar Hero. nothing on youtube though, only tournaments, demo's and even playing in a pilot episode for a TV show (that never got aired)

    He made enough money off it to barely live from, so he was still working his normal job as well, so it was just a nice little bonus doing something he enjoyed.

    He hardly plays anymore since a year or so. and hasn't tried "going pro" on any other game, although i'm pretty sure he could if he wanted to.

    You would have to go back in 2006-7 if you hope to get sponsored for being good at a music game. You can still get sponsored for being really good at other games but it's a lot of work and not worth doing solely for that reason.

    The RB/GH community is just a tiny shadow of what it use to be back then, and everyone has all seen crazy FCs like TTFaF done by many players and such by now and now we don't care as much.

    Yeah, nobody's gonna sponsor you for playing Rock Band. Those days are long gone.

    Machinima? I thought he made very SFX-driven videos like this.
