Overview: We're in the midst of a Community Revolution (Version 2.0) in the games industry. Community is being more heavily integrated into production, the ripple effects changing (not without struggle) how games are designed and marketed. Panelists from today's most respected developers will share examples of successful community integration at their studios while offering glimpses into how and why such changes were enacted. They'll also address thorny topics such as whether community-building falls under game design or marketing, whether community can be measured and monetized, and when should community be tuned out during development. Are you participating in the Community Revolution or watching from the sidelines?
