After Kickstarting $2.5M In 2 Days, Can OUYA Disrupt Gaming?

After Kickstarting $2.5M In 2 Days, Can OUYA Disrupt Gaming? | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Why can’t I play my mobile games on my television? It’s a simple problem with a million solutions, none of which have taken over the world just yet. Will my phone Wi-Fi stream games to my TV, or will my TV just have an app store? 

 

OUYA is a simple solution. It’s a $100 box that’s about the size of a Rubik’s Cube. It’s fit with a powerful smartphone chipset. And it can play pretty much any Android game or other app on your TV through a console-quality controller that features a d-pad, triggers, buttons and even a touchpad. Hackers are free to open it with a normal screwdriver. And every game it runs will be free-to-play. Their proprietary Android app store will only allow developers to charge for components like extra content packs. Games always download at no cost whatsoever....

'Two Frenchies' Love Detroit So Much They Make A Movie About It

 

After months of giving peeks into their process on their blog, filmmakers Nora Mandray and Hélène Bienvenu have revealed screenshots of interactive documentary "Detroit Je T'aime," as well as a request for funding help.

 

On their Kickstarter, the two filmmakers from France who have been living in the city for a year explain the concept of the movie. It will be "broadcast" online with several different short films exploring DIY (Do It Yourself) projects in Detroit and a toolkit for watchers to create their own.

 

"For us, Detroit is a city of change makers. Our three protagonists are using the crisis as an opportunity to redefine our values," they say in their Kickstarter video. "'Detroit Je T'ame' is about creating an immersive experience that inspires you to connect outside of the Internet."

 

The film follows a bike mechanic, an urban farmer and a community organizer involved in community building....

Next Issue Media's unlimited, Netflix-style service for magazine tablet editions has arrived on the iPad.

 

Major publishers' Netflix-like service for magazines has arrived on the iPad, putting the industry in a position to finally find out whether an all-you-can-read digital offering will help win new readers and encourage overall consumption.

 

The service, which comes via an app from Next Issue Media, has been on certain Android devices since April, but iPad availability will dramatically expand its reach. The app, which also sells individual subscriptions and individual issues, has fewer than 15,000 regular users so far....

Adults Crave Original Content while Tentpole Enthusiasm Wanes

Adults Crave Original Content while Tentpole Enthusiasm Wanes | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

The Austin Film Festival's film program director Stephen Jannise argues that "a new demographic is there for the taking." Using the recent success of "Moonrise Kingdom," "Bernie," "To Rome with Love," "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," "Magic Mike," "Ted" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" as evidence, he writes that "grown-ups want to go to the movies, too, and they’re looking for something original." Sure, "The Avengers," "The Amazing Spider-Man" and in all likelihood "The Dark Knight Rises" are still tentpole moneymakers attracting the 18-25 crowd (and others), but Jannise lays out a theory as to why a new demographic is emerging and urges Hollywood to take note. It boils down to this:


Best Exotic Marigold Hotel The "Gone with the Wind" generation only went to see a new film every couple of weeks, and Hollywood gradually stopped catering to them. But now that the generation that came of age during the profitable blockbuster (i.e. "Jaws") era has grown up, Hollywood can't keep up with their programmed need to see something new every weekend. Unfortunately for studios, much of that grown-up generation has grown tired of aliens, sequels and spandex and doesn't want to pay upwards of $15 to be bombasted with it all on a regular basis. But that doesn't mean they are tired of movies;...

Radio, Comic-Con, and the Future of Entertainment | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

Comic-Con opens this week in San Diego.It’s ground zero for media and popular culture and one of the biggest star-studded events this side of Oscar.


What better excuse to talk to Rob Salkowitz, author of Comic-Con and the Business of Pop Culture. But it’s the book’s subtitle that has the most relevance for a media audience: “What the World’s Wildest Trade Show Can Tell Us About the Future of Entertainment.”


Comic-Con is a melting pot for media content and platforms. So what lessons should broadcasters take away from an event as likely to attract movie stars as Klingons?...

Two Guys Made a Web Site, and This Is What They Got (TY Ingrid Kopp!) | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
Four months after it started up, Upworthy, a news aggregation site built on social sharing, is gaining traction and drawing attention to content that is often ignored.

 

What if this article began with a link to a chart on media consolidation? Would you click it?

What if, instead, this article began with a promise that it would tell you “The Real Reason They Still Play ‘Mrs. Robinson’ on the Radio.” Would you click that?

What if they were both the same thing?

Upworthy, a news aggregation site that began publishing on March 26, is serious news built for a spreadable age, with super clicky headlines and a visually oriented user interface. Eli Pariser, the former executive director of MoveOn.org, and Peter Koechley, a former managing editor of The Onion who also worked at MoveOn, noticed that much of the media that gets shared online is built on cute animals and dumb humans that are good for a laugh, but not much else....

Meanwhile, over on Minecraft The Hunger Games are running 24/7

Meanwhile, over on Minecraft The Hunger Games are running 24/7 | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

A few weeks back, my neighbour’s 8 year old son spent almost over an hour carefully spelling out ‘Minecraft’ in foot and half high multi-coloured letters on the sidewalk in front of his and mine. When I asked him why he liked the game, he said: ‘It’s entertaining…. And it’s really good for spatial stuff and building things.’ His eyes lit up and he started describing all the things he’d built, the CN Tower, a castle, and various objects from volcanos to dynamite. Later this week he’s going to show me what he’s made and I can’t wait.

 

Minecraft is huge – an online game sandbox that allows anyone to build pretty much anything, developed by Markus ‘Notch’ Persson. Not only was Notch awarded the BAFTA Special Award in March 2012 for ‘significant contribution to a sector,’ Minecraft is now the best selling XBox Live Arcade game ever, with over 2 million games sold. So when a friend’s 14 year old son, Alex, told me he spent a ton of time playing in online versions of The Hunger Games built in Minecraft, I ever curious, immediately asked if he would show me...

Lovely Stop-Motion Video: The Endless Loops Of Kishi Bashi | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

If you're not already hip to the name Kishi Bashi, it's only a matter of time before you get there. The solo project from indie violinist and master sonic looper Kaoru Ishibashi (who goes by K) has been sending critics into raptures since even before the release of the debut Kishi Bashi album 151A this April. NPR's Stephen Thompson called the Virginia native's “one-man orchestra” of violin, beatboxing and English and Japanese vocals one of a few standouts from South By Southwest. The Washington Post reported at least one woman openly weeping at a Kishi Bashi concert, and Andrew Bird comparisons are already piling on like so many violin loops.
