Our host and guests give their thoughts on the Wii U and other major releases from this holiday season.
Here it is: the first episode of GamesBeat’s official podcast, BYOT.
Developers are learning that they can go to their fans, not merely the big publishers, to obtain funding for their games.
VentureBeat is pleased to announce the latest speakers added to our roster for GamesBeat 2012 in San Francisco on July 10-11. We’re inviting 500 movers and shakers from throughout the games industry — social, mobile, online, and console — to talk about the “Crossover Era”. The game industry as we know it is changing. We’re seeing established companies cross over from one market to another, where once they faced barriers. As companies adapt to change, we are witnessing disruption, change, consolidation, innovation, and the arrival of big money. We’re talking billions of dollars that are at stake.
As part of our expansion of GamesBeat, we are pleased to announce that VentureBeat has hired Sebastian Haley as lead review writer. If you haven’t noticed, Sebastian has been writing high-quality, witty and critical reviews of the biggest video games of the fall season.
For almost four years, we’ve been building out GamesBeat as VentureBeat’s game channel. We have held three annual GamesBeat conferences where the movers and shakers of the industry talk about the latest trends in games. Now we’re expanding to build an even better GamesBeat.
