Virtual Reality - So which technology do we look to, which will allow us this needed increase in reactive response? Two words: virtual reality.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

VR is coming, prepare yourselves... FOR THE FUTURE.

GAME ON - Facebook Becomes A Gamer [Is This FB Idea GOOD or BAD? Leave A Comment]

GAME ON - Facebook Becomes A Gamer [Is This FB Idea GOOD or BAD? Leave A Comment] | Contests and Games Revolution | Scoop.it
After years of being strictly a platform for gaming companies to distribute and promote their titles, Facebook on Tuesday unveiled its new mobile games publishing initiative, aiming to back a select handful of gaming outfits to ...
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Facebook As Partner
Wow, this move by Facebook in interesting and a balloon filled with interesting ideas and notions. Facebook is setting up to do more than simply host games. Facebook will take a cut of game revenue in order to help facilitate product acceptance in ways only it can (tap that amazing database for "like me" gamers).

There is talk that Facebook's real revenue comes from the information they've managed to gather on a billion people. This move suggests a way for Facebook to make money from its information while helping nascent game companies get a leg up. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Khalid Hart's curator insight, March 6, 2014 12:00 PM

Facebook has really turned its tide as far as usage goes.  I rarely if ever see a status anymore. These days all I see is pictures from some page I liked back in 2010 and then multiple candy crush saga invites.  I used to play Mafia Wars until I realized that it's a never ending game. Someone told me they surpassed rank level 999 and was still ascending.  Simply put Facebook has become its own unofficial console. I say that because there are plenty of games to choose from not to mention you can also tie in your mobile device games to Facebook.
