May 24th, 2007 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Events & Conferences | No Comments »

Digital Media Wire has summarized some interesting details from the
Games + Mobile Forum which was being held in Los Angeles last week.

Gamespot Mobile Analyst Kitt McCurdy explained about mix of consumers that currently resides in their database. Over the past few years, the amount of women have increased and so did the age difference; “Gamers today include anybody.”

Robert Nashak, from said that user generated content in something Yahoo is really waiting for. They don’t want to expose their 50M monthly visitors to a cheap looking one off download.

Chris Petrovic, VP Digital Media at Playboy, showed the clear need for mobile games, or rather big media games where mobile gaming would take an important part; “To be able to play 1 game on 3 different screens, following you wherever you are” is the way to do it, he said. “You sign up on the web, play on your mobile, then in your living room.”

Robert Nashak agreed and commented that Yahoo will show more of this kind of gaming.
