  • Top Trends I spotted at GDC Europe & Gamescom 2011 | BrandNewGame
    their own platforms After MSN Games Spil Games Zylom Facebook Steam Valve Electronic Arts and many many others it looks like all publishers want to either have their own community of gamers like Steam and EA or are trying to plug their content on large community networks with certain specific target group for instance Vkontakte in Russia or Qzone in China 3 Controlling movement movement controls After I visited the booths of Microsoft Kinect PlayStation Move and Nintendo Wii and U Play I could only conclude that they all believe that movement games are our new living room entertainment concept Games vary from sailing rowing fitness running boxing cycling and even fishing if that s a sport to you It s a good development considering obesity with kids especially in USA and the fact that children are challenged to move actively even when it s raining 4 Device Independent Gameplay In the past game developers would port existing PC games to other Platforms without regarding the specific context the games would be played in on that specific platform Luckily these days developers and publishers spend more time redesigning their intellectual property to other platforms which can easily turn into great new gameplay elements and enriched ways of play For instance it was quite impressive to see this first person shooter on an iPad it looks like Unreal Tournament in 2000 Thanks to Unity games can look amazing on different platforms phone PC PlayStation etc Unity is a stunning easily create your own game engine for game designers that like programming the easy way It s comparable to a programming tool like HTML5 but Unity is compatible with all platforms and is not just web or browser based This tool makes it possible to for instance chop wood with your mobile phone on a train trip in a mobile mini game and utilizing the money you made chopping wood in the train on your PlayStation console as soon as you get home and continue playing that same type of game World of Warcraft for instance 5 Cloud Gaming Another trend game developers expect is what I call Cloud Gaming Companies like Onlive and IQU are providing this game content and are serving you content that you do not even have to own or download on your PC console or Phone I mentioned this trend in my book already Consuming digital content will evolve from owning content to being able to acces content The business models are either subscriptions or an in game economy based on micro transactions 6 Games for a Greater Good and Serious Gaming Although there weren t much companies around during GDC I am still convinced that the interest to use games for serious objectives and public welfare is still rising In one month I have been approached to speak at an event in New York London and Moscow so it must be a hot topic One of the few companies I met during GDC was Playdom Jude

  • Blog | BrandNewGame - Part 6
    name like Hufen since there s just one Bart Hufen up to now you tend to get a fair idea of how you mutualized your online privacy in the past ten years I googled my name yesterday and 181 000 hits came up Of course they re not just exclusively about me but I estimate 90 of all hits are I killed some time reading through the results and found out I am in a Top 20 list of Global Gamification Guru s Of course I was honored because it s fuel for my ego I m currently holding position 12 coming from place 50 and I will make it my goal to hold the first position any week soon in the upcoming year You can help me by Twittering and Sharing all my upcoming articles Thanks so much Geplaatst in Digital plaats een reactie PlayStation to become biggest global TV network After the news end of last year about YouTube dedicated HD TV channels and Google TV PlayStation announces that it will rename it s current PlayStation Network to SEN Sony Entertainment Network I saw an incredibly cool presentation last week at the iMMovator conference about connected television where Sony unfolded their plans for 2012 and beyond As I predicted in my book A Brand New Playground the game consoles develop into home entertainment systems that are connected to all the content in the world through the internet The video below shows you how PlayStation was already providing all sorts of content in 2010 It organized consumer content photo s music and video s but was also connected to content providers like Hulu and Mubi arthouse movies and loads of other stuff It s nice to know that currently more than 50 of all PlayStations are connected to the internet which is about 30 million PlayStations globally Now in the near future PlayStation will largely copy Apple s functionalities the PlayStation will be the core of content that will be accessible by all Sony devices and screens in your household The cool thing is that they decided to make it an open system based on Android Hooray for Sony well done Now finally we can access Sony pictures Sony music and Sony PlayStation content with all kinds of devices and a specially designed remote control with touch screen and a complete abc on the back will help you to navigate through all that content Sony also promised to deliver full internet access instead of just limited versions of YouTube and Google The main difference is that with Google TV on the Sony televisions you can actually watch two layers of content at the same time internet television content Technically these two cannot be integrated as of yet but the layers are so well integrated that it will feel as one stream of content The older internet television force you to choose between either TV content or internet content the future televisions connected televisions will enable you to multitask like you never had before and make your tablet your third screen while sitting on the couch instead of your second screen I will be visiting the release of PlayStation Vita tomorrow where we will hear more undoubtedly Meanwhile read some more on the Sony USA website Geplaatst in PlayStation plaats een reactie Thank you reader 50 000 pageviews for my blog Just a moment of a big THANK YOU to all my readers in the past 3 years I grew from 3 000 unique visitors in 2010 to 5 000 unique visitors in 2011 and hope it will continue to grow in 2012 to I don t know 8 000 Apart from the unique visitors we served 45 000 pageviews in 2011 compared to 18 661 in 2010 Please spread the word and link your website or blog to mine so we can increase traffic for both of our websites Geplaatst in Digital plaats een reactie Your own private shopper in your bedroom thanks to Kinect Another way to use Kinect technology for shopping Although it surprises me that they don t use the camera to show you how the outfit actually fits to your body That would be the ultimate fitting experience but there is always room for improvement I guess Geplaatst in Kinect plaats een reactie An Animation about Motivation Nice work Geplaatst in Digital plaats een reactie Coca Cola Content 2020 Part One What the world will look like sharing happiness in 2020 To be honest I still find it strange that Fanta didn t claim Fanta Size or Fantastic yet and during Christmas Fanta Clause but maybe they will after reading this I really hope that some day they call me I really have some great digital global game ideas for the Fanta brand or does anyone know the Global brand director at the Coca Cola Company Let me know Meanwhile enjoy this visionary video Geplaatst in Digital plaats een reactie FBI exploits the potential of gaming By Morton Geertsen Last week GameSpot posted this article called How Video Games Are Improving the FBI It s a well written pierce of information providing readers with an entertaining and insightful example of how serious games can play a central role in passing on skills and close to real life experiences to the staff of the organization In this case it is The Federal Bureau of Investment or shorter FBI whose game trainer Randy Pargman reveals how though in game training agents come to understand tactical arrest planning and crime scene investigation Maybe this example looks more like a simulation than an actual game but still it s very cool that the FBI sees the potential of using serious games and game mechanics on Xbox to educate their trainees Like out of a Matrix film the digital world makes it possible to instantly and dynamically change the physical environments taking the recruits from one city to another Also the game makes it able to present to the recruits
