Future of Game Development on Multiple Platforms

A session at SXSW Interactive 2012

Saturday 10th March, 2012

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Take the dynamic world of cross-platform gaming and mix it with the knowledge garnered from the former CEO and co-founder of MySpace and you’ve got a behind the scenes look at the ins and outs of the $5.5 billion social gaming market. Now helming Social Gaming Network (SGN), Internet pioneer DeWolfe is best known as co-founder of MySpace, the online network that redefined the concept of socializing around shared interests. With his finger always on the digital pulse, Chris sits down with USA Today’s Mike Snider to discuss the social gaming opportunity, lessons learned…and how cross-platform gaming is adding up to big bucks.
