Sony is rolling out the big guns in support of the PS3, with vice president of SCE Worldwide Studios Jamie Macdonald due to keynote at London’s Games Developers Conference, GamesIndustry.biz can exclusively reveal.
Macdonald’s keynote will explore the shift from a ‘package-centric world to a network-centric future’. With emphasis on the PlayStation 3, Macdonald will focus on new forms of content, organisation development, nurturing a development ecosystem and exploring new revenue streams.
