What's Next? How games-as-a-service is changing everything

As a general partner at Signia Venture Partners, Dan Fiden's job is to figure out the future of the games industry as best he can -- so, naturally, he was a perfect pick to talk about the future of games. Read on to find out why he thinks freemium and games-as-a-service models are only beginning to catalyze changes that will reverberate through the entire industry. (Casual games, Daniel Fiden, Dev, Mobile, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It's changing my desire to play new games, to absolute zero.

I already predicted this over 2 years ago.
LostPotato  +   623d ago
Well said. When everything is online and a service I'm quitting gaming.

WHAT hi Synbios. I finally played scenarios 2 and 3 in English a couple of months ago :)
kalkano  +   623d ago
lol! A little off topic, but Shining Force 3 is one of the best games ever made. ;)
Volkama  +   623d ago
I don't anticipate many Shining Force 3 topics appearing on N4G any time soon, so I had to blurt it out :p

Publishers are trying to transform games from a product (that you own) to a service that you rent from them, until their servers see less activity and are invariably turned off.

Time to make our voices heard and to vote with our wallets. Enough is enough.
Coach_McGuirk  +   623d ago
I AGREE
Saryk  +   623d ago
This is how gaming will go through a dark age.

Exec A: "Hey, gaming is pretty popular now, right?"
Exec B: "Yeah..."
Exec A: "Let's figure out how to make it unpopular by nickel and diming people."

Enter the Era of Retro Gaming.
kalkano  +   622d ago
I've already been in that era for the last 5+ years.
