"Issues with Development and Distribution of Video Games," Scripts, Lies, and Videogames, Southwestern Law School
Kraig Baker moderated this panel on: "Issues with Development and Distribution of Video Games" at the Scripts, Lies, and Videogames conference. The panel focused on the development and distribution of video games, looking at the process from the perspective of developers, publishers, rightsholders and distributors.
- How is video game development and distribution the same and how is it different from traditional television and movie production and distribution?
- How do development and distribution issues vary if the game is a MMORPG, a console game, or a casual game?
- How do the different business models (freemium, subscription, episodic, etc.) impact development and distribution?
- How has mobile gaming and the iPad impacted gaming? What about the Wii and Kinect? What about social networking?
