- “Leveling the Playing Field” (Business Track – Theme: Making money making games; 60 minutes)
Again and again we hear the phrase “the games development business model is broken but few alternatives are ever put forward. With a third of all console and PC games being “canned�? in Development and only one in ten games making any profit for publishers and the other nine making losses. With multi billion dollar publishers relying on a small handfull of products to make profits, it does appear that the current system is flawed and high risk.. William Latham (Develop Magazine columnist, Developer CEO of the award winning Playstation2 game THING, CEO of Games Audit) explores new business development models to replace the old and put the creative geniuses back in the driving seat again.
Themes include “company restructuring around game IPs�?, “the Grand National with snipers�?, “keep your IP or quit�?, “mistrust and more mistrust�?, “the five takeaways and the coffin shop�?, “how to look glamorous to investors�?, “the adoption of the film world process�? and “games development middleware�?.
