Valve co-founder Gabe Newell believes that the future of the game development will be based on a biometric analysis of players.
In an acceptance speech at the Game Developers Choice Awards, Newell said he envisioned developers getting more personal, intimate information from the player – with that data being used to refine the experience.
"In terms of looking ahead, what's important in the future?" he asked.
"We think Biometrics will be really important, we've seen a lot of work since the Wii shipped to explore how motion – and with this next generation of controllers – how vision systems are going to affect our games."
