|Session Name:||Peering into the Black Box of Player Behavior: The Player Experience Panel at Microsoft Game Studios|
|Track / Format:||Production|
|Overview:||Improving our understanding of how consumers play games is useful for all involved in game development. The Player Experience Panel is a new tool at MGS that enables us to collect behavioral game play data from consumers for all games played on Xbox Live, without the use of any in-game code.

In this talk I will discuss the design of the Panel, the behavioral data collection process, and a broad overview of the insights the Panel provides.|
