What they talked about: After giving a brief rundown of how she landed her current gig at Ubisoft, Raymond took a step back to look at current trends in the gaming industry. Social and casual gaming were up first as Raymond talked about the top games in the industry in terms of players and revenue generated. At the top of this list were Facebook titles.
Raymond went on to say that the proliferation of platforms has helped change the way she thinks about gaming. There are a ton of new screens and platforms that gaming developers can target, she said. More importantly, there are a number of new ways to interface with games, from the Wii and the Kinect to touch screens on mobile phones.
