Here is a panel session taking place in the lunchroom, post-lunch, while another session takes place at the same time downstairs in the auditorium in the afternoon's two-track format.
The Social Factor - Building a Community around Games
Xbox Live and Playstation Network has given gamers a platform to interact real-time with other gamers around the world, express their emotions playing the game and enhance the experience for each other in powerful new ways. This panel will discuss the opportunities to bridle the power of social media to build communities that foster and promote programming in new and innovative ways, not just confined to the networks built around hard core console gaming, but through and on Facebook and other platforms. What's next as gaming meets the internet and social networks?
