Gaming Massively

Wednesday, November 14, 2007


Not often I see gaming news in Le Monde, but an article today (Le français Ubisoft résiste à l'hégémonie américaine) talks about France's sole remaining player in the gaming world, Ubisoft. I tried to get a job with them at one point to work on Worlds of Myst or whatever it was called (Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, apparently), their foray into massive gaming.

The article does make a good point - for whatever reason, gaming right now is dominated by American companies. I wonder what sort of interesting developments we're missing because of this. As many people have noted previously, creating games, and especially massive games, has gotten very expensive. This tends to lead to consolidation. But why has all the consolidation taken company ownership to the US, I wonder?
