Title: Games Industry 3.0
Date: Tuesday, May 29, 2007
Location: Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP
Address: 2475 Hanover Street
Palo Alto, CA 94304
Sponsor: Chinese Software Professional Association (CSPA)
About The Event:
The global games industry is now valued at over $30 Billion. The rapid growth of the industry, the introduction of next generation gaming consoles and advanced PC hardware, the wide popularity of massively multiplayer online (MMO) content such as World of Warcraft, user generated games, and online distribution channels introduced many new challenges. Video game budgets can easily exceed twenty million dollars. How is the industry dealing with these challenges and what opportunities exist in this highly popular and lucrative industry? What new business models are emerging? How does the convergence between the TV and the computer screen affect the games industry?
This CSPA event brings together a group of highly experienced panelists to shed light on the challenges in the Games Industry, and represents a great opportunity to network with peers involved in the game industry.
