With wording of "sports gaming professionals" at the top, I have to admit that wondered if this was indeed a paying position or on a volunteer/intern basis.

There is no pay for writing for Operation Sports, but you do get free games (the one's you review) and occasionally you might to get to go on preview trips.

It is currently volunteer, however there are definitely certain perks. E.g. free games, potential opportunities to represent OS at media/press events etc. As OS grows we plan to one day compensate all of our staff writers, however at this point in time it simply is not possible.
