As the new presenting sponsor of NBA Saturday Primetime telecasts, We’re All Gamers television spots will begin on January 19 and will continue through the playoffs and the NBA Finals on ABC and ESPN. In addition to commercial time, HyperX branding will be integrated into game time outs. ESPN’s SportsCenter will also feature HyperX virtual set integrations several times throughout the NBA season.

The We’re All Gamers campaign is designed to integrate into today’s dual-screen world of watching on a big screen and looking down at a mobile device to watch the game or during breaks in between gameplay. Here is a 30 second campaign example with four influencers and their gaming spirits.
