SEATTLE, WA (August 10, 2010) – Game Industry TV™ today announced the launch of episode two of celebrated video game show “Game Theory with Scott Steinberg™,” which asks whether or not the gaming industry has really learned its lesson in the face of continued sales declines and studio closures. Titled “Time for a Reality Check,” the documentary, available now at www.gametheoryonline.com, explores whether developers and publishers like Activision, UbiSoft and Electronic Arts are really adapting fast enough to survive in the face of growing competition from social networks, downloadable titles and free online games.
Taking a closer look at the key issues impacting the video game business, including changing player habits, growing economic concerns and the rise of mobile and online platforms, it explores the continuing shift to digital distribution and monumental changes that have followed. Featuring commentary by Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins, The Sims creator Will Wright, Gaikai CEO David Perry and other noted industry leaders, the video reveals the extent of the historic upheavals impacting the gaming business, and what it takes to evolve in their wake.
The second in a multi-part series on both the state, and utter reinvention, of the video game industry, it offers the most candid account of what’s happening behind the scenes today from those who know best – the field’s biggest names.
