I'm always baffled by double standards; and with what's occurred in the Console industry over the past few years has been no exception.
Typically I'd make a comparison between the Console and PC gaming markets but this time around will forego that to keep this topic a bit more focused and succinct. So what am I referring to? In short: there's been a pretty devastating vacuum left by Nintendo amongst the big 3 Console Mfg's over the past few years with their release of the WiiU. Yet... we hear little to nothing about the 'Death of Console Gaming'. So why is this?
At Intel, we're always excited to be supporting our videogame developers. This summer, we had the opportunity to bring two of our popular #BuzzWorkshop series to San Francisco and Seattle where the best and brightest videogame developers with industry influencers met to address the challenges and opportunities in gaming. Each day-long workshop was packed with technical sessions, industry panels, networking sessions and a developer showcase.
