    "Design Outside the Box" - Must Watch Video

    If you have a half-hour to spare for any sort of entertainment in the next couple of days, you must watch the "Design Outside the Box" video from the DICE 2010 Summit (a conference for gaming industry executives and leaders). The presentation is given by Jesse Schell, who is a professor at Carnegie Mellon University (among many other things). While it is by no means short at just over 28 minutes in length, I will bet that it will be one of the best and most insightful things you will have watched in quite awhile, and well worth your time.

    creepy to think about, i really hope the trends in gaming don't lead us to the crazy ass world he described.

    Intel i7 920 2.67Ghz - GeForce GTX 670 - ASUS Sabertooth X58 Mobo - CORSAIR DDR3 6GB RAM - Antec 900 Case - Antec EarthWatts EA750 750W PS - Razer Mamba/Anasi

    I think he was really trying to express that we are at a very important time in gaming and that those who would look to take the various platforms to their respective next levels would be wise to think differently than those they would aspire to succeed.

    and that gaming isn't just boxing up a console title or a PC game and throwing it on the shelf and moving to the next one. There is a shitload of money in all the micro-transactions within the game, prob much more than any money that can be made in the sales price.

    So while MW2 can make one-time billion dollars in a week, Farmville is going to make a billion dollars in a year... and keep making a billion dollars a year. (just an example, numbers are not accurate)

    and like he said: "rock band? a plastic guitar for 70 bucks? really?"

    He's saying that gaming has changed, in a thousand different ways, from the Wii to mobile gaming to facebook and others. And if you're developing games, you better watch for (or create) the next big thing.
