Session Description
A blended panel of industry and independent bloggers and podcasters will discuss the pros and cons of interfacing with alternative gaming press. Are independent blogs and podcasts a threat to the aims of game studios and publishers or can they represent a valuable channel for community building and information dissemination? Also, what value do studio-operated blogs and podcasts provide in terms of community building and product marketing? Are corporate blogs and podcasts able to break through to audiences without compromising the traditionally anti-commerce format of blogs and podcast and consequently drawing ire from the gaming audience?
