|Session Name:||The Multiplayer Singularity|
|Track / Format:||Future of Gaming|
|Overview:||With 4G mobile, always-on devices and wearable technology, we are approaching a point where the idea of being permanently connected is no longer a fanciful dream. It's not just always-on devices, but always-on people, always-gaming, always-engaging. Does this future mean that we will always be playing multiplayer games? What kinds of games might they be? What does this future mean for single-player games? How might we connect to play constantly in the future? This wide-ranging panel explores the idea of multiplayer in an always-connected world and asks what it really means.|
