Are game system publishers paying attention to Mark Rein? I would venture to say yes. Part of this is common sense, but at the same time paying attention to the changing landscape of the gaming business is paramount for everyone involved. Going back to 2006 if it where not for Epic Games pushing Microsoft to include additional memory in their soon to be released Xbox 360. Not only would Gears of War not have been made, looked, and done spectacular. The very success that Microsoft enjoys today with their Xbox 360 console platform would not exist.
We made an editorial mistake pertaining to date of 2006 being the year of release for the Xbox 360. It should be "2005" for a general time frame of reference.
