PC Gaming Alliance Offically Announced

Marcus Yam (Blog) - February 20, 2008 8:42 AM

As first reported last week, leaders in the PC industry are banding together in an effort to maintain and advance PC gaming. Announced today, the PC Gaming Alliance is a non-profit organization that unites hardware and software creators, game developers and publishers to keep the PC as a viable and attractive platform for developers.

The PC Gaming Alliance will also attempt to stay competitive with the console gaming industry by coordinated marketing, developing and promoting guidelines and recommendations, such as for hardware requirements and anti-piracy measures, and foster information sharing between members to accelerate the PC gaming industry.

In light of the recent NPD report that the PC gaming industry only accounted for 14 percent of retail game sales in 2007, the PC Gaming Alliance will also encourage consistent and accurate reporting of PC gaming market sizing and research, including online sales.   [DailyTech...]   [Comments]
