This Time It's Different: Treasures and Traps in the Next Gen Transition


We think of console titles as a separate channel from all other games, but this particular Next Gen transition creates risks and opportunities across mobile and online platforms as well. Will the new consoles solve industry problems or will the struggles of the current cycle continue? What traditions can we rely on in console game development and what will change? Don Daglow is the only executive in games industry history to lead development teams on every generation of video games, from the Atari vs. Intellivision era thirty-plus years ago up until today. He'll share his perspectives on traps awaiting the unwary, as well as the treasures to be found on console and every other platform in these transition years.
