Gaming's Next Gen: Will AAA or Indie Games Win?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

After years of speculation the next generation of gaming consoles have arrived, but does gaming's future belong to traditional publishers producing AAA games or have indie and mobile game creators and the advent of crowd-funding changed the shape of the games industry irrevocably?
Games media veterans GameSpot's Ben Howard and Red Robot Labs Inc. John Davison will lead a discussion about the challenges publishers of core, big-budget franchises face as well as what emerging companies in the mobile and indie scene are changing all expectations about the games industry and its future.
This SXSW Gaming Session at the Long Center is FREE and open to the public. However SXSW Interactive, Film, Gold and Platinum badges gain priority seating.
