I’ve just been through one of the report following the last CTIA (http://www.mpogd.com/news/?ID=1748), and I have noticed this comment, from Bill Barhdyt, CEO of Sennari:
“Speaking of multiplayer gaming, Barydt defined networked mobile gaming by two categories: person to person interaction (through advertising, in-game transactions and AI-based game content) and person to machine (instant messaging. turn-based tournaments and wagering)”
What does this mean…. As usual, multiplayer game is not the only way tu use network, sending score, managing interaction, turn based games , etc.. are other type of interactive games with the server…
We used to name this connected game, and were too honnest to not put this into the multiplayer category…So we were doing multiplayer in this definition since ’99…A real precusor!
