1) Compete in cash tournaments.

The first way you can become a professional gamer is by absolutely mastering your game and competing in cash tournaments. There are many gaming leagues where you can enter daily cash tournaments. A lot of them operate in similar fashion to poker sites. You add funds to your online wallet, find a lobby, and compete. If you're confident in your skill at a specific game, you can earn serious cash by playing in a lot of these online cash tournaments for PS4 or any other platform. There are many different sites online where you can compete in cash tournaments for PS4 and other system. Some of the top tier leagues are:

worldgaming.com - World Gaming hosts free to enter and pay to play tournaments as well as head to head challenges for competitive gamers of all skill levels.

egl.tv - Operating in Europe, and primarily the UK, the EGL is a network of eSports leagues set up by gamers, for gamers.

progamingleague.com - The PGL is one of the premier video game tournament destinations. They have been around for a long time and have been giving millions of aspiring gamers from around the world an opportunity to compete, test their skills and socialize in an online community and live competitions for cash, points and prizes.

majorleaguegaming.com - With over 9 million members, 100 games on a variety of platforms, and over $4,000,000 awarded in cash prizes, MLG is one of the top tournament platforms in the gaming industry.

These are just a sample of the many leagues young aspiring gamers can compete in to earn a living. They all have one thing in common, these leagues are setup for gamers, by gamers themselves. They understand the market for the millions of young gamers, and can help you achieve your dream of becoming a professional gamer. If you start winning some of these tournaments, people will take note of your abilities.

2) Form a team and get noticed.

One of the best ways to get serious about becoming a professional gamer, is to surround yourself with people of a similar goal. However, forming a gaming team can be no easy task. Just like anyone else, gamers can have strong personalities and finding the right fit within a team can be difficult. That is why you must have the same objectives and goals when creating your new gaming team. If you want to make a serious push with your new team, you have to treat playing together as a job and practice together on a daily basis.

If you are lucky enough to have formed a team with chemistry and skill, it's time to start competing in tournaments and proving you have what it takes to compete. If you have success with your team, two things might happen on your path to becoming a professional gamer:

Other teams will take note, and might try to poach you off your existing team to join theirs. This is pretty common in the eSports scene because it is not very regulated. The use of contracts are just starting to take place and sometimes cannot always be enforced. Let's face it, the gaming industry and be cutthroat, and in order to achieve success you may have to leave your current squad if you think your chances of becoming a champion are better on a new one. I'm not saying being disloyal to your original team will be rewarded by success, but you have to look at for what is best for you.

Your team gets noticed by companies looking to hand out sponsorship's to promote their brand. You know you are on the right path when this happens. Big companies might be willing to invest in your teams success by providing equipment, clothing, money, and sometimes even a place to live.

3) Create a brand as a streamer using social media.

Another way to make money while playing PS4 games would be to become a full-time streamer. Services like Twitch offer gamers a platform to play their favorite video games while streaming their feed over the internet for anyone to watch.

This might be the easiest, yet most difficult way to earn a living while playing video games. What we mean by this is that anyone with a bit of decent hardware and a place to stream can do it. The challenge is promoting yourself to the point where you can attract a reoccurring audience.

This is where social media comes into play. The best way gamers can promote themselves is through social media outlets like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube. There are popular streamers and Youtubers that make more than enough money to live comfortably. Millionaires have emerged from YouTube and streaming. Sounds like fun right? Playing games and streaming to a community while interacting with them.

4) Join G2A and start building your network

This is a really interesting way to earn some cash while doing VERY little work.  If you haven't heard of G2A.com, you should go over to their website and check it out.  It's one of the great places to buy and trade games with total security and reliability.  So how can you make money off G2A you wonder? It's pretty simple.  All you have to do is create a G2A Goldmine account by clicking here:

https://www.g2a.com/r/ps4fans

Once you are registered on the site, you can create an affiliate profile and your own shop using reflinks.  If someone registers under your reflink (like the one above), they will become part of your network.  Any time someone from your network make a purchase, you will be credited with a % of how much they spent.  It's really quite awesome and if you're successful and build a large network, you can cash in pretty good while doing almost no work. 

In conclusion, there are many ways to make money off playing Playstation 4

Whether you're highly skilled and like to compete in cash tournaments, or prefer to sit back and have fun while streaming to an audience, the possibilities of becoming a professional gamer are becoming a lot more plentiful.

I think one of the most important things to remember is there are multiple streams like the ones mentioned above.  You don't have to be the BEST to have fun and make money while doing it.  A friend of mine, Siefe has a pretty interesting video titled How To Make Money Playing Video Games.  He talks about being confident as being a gamer and putting in the work because a lot of people don't realize how dedicated you need to be. Also being consistent with everything you do is vital to your success.  Have a watch:
