In what ways will computer and videogames change in the next 10 years? It is a question that tech-obsessed gamers often ask each other (often after a few pints on a Friday night), when we consider just how far we have come since the early days of Pong and Space Invaders of the 1970’s.
The last ten years have been gaming’s golden decade. The next-gen consoles fulfilled their early promises. But the games industry is nothing if not forward-looking. It doesn’t tend to do nostalgia. And with a flurry of new gaming technologies on the near-future horizon we want to know what the industry experts – the developers, the publishers, the hardware makers – think that gaming in 2020 is going to be like.
At this week’s METal we will have the creator of Atari, Nolan Bushnell speaking to us about the emerging gaming world including motion and voice control; MMOs and online gaming; 3D and new display technologies; cloud gaming and the hot new space Smart Speaker gaming.
Nolan Bushnell is the creator of Atari, Inc. and the Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza Time Theatre chain. Bushnell has been inducted into the Video Game Hall of Fame and the Consumer Electronics Association Hall of Fame, received the BAFTA Fellowship and the Nations Restaurant News “Innovator of the Year” award, and was named one of Newsweek’s “50 Men Who Changed America.”
