X-Summit Early Bird Ends Today

For those of you who are debating going to X-Summit you’re going to want to get your tickets before the end of the day today. It’s Interactive Ontario‘s annual interactive media conference held in Toronto, albeit with a new name this year. Why they changed the name, I can’t say, I guess some people like it better that way.

X-Summit is happening 24-26th of October in Toronto.

NPD Reveals Digital Gaming Space Taxonomy

NPD Group is a good resource for market information and they have recently released how they classify video games.

They have done a good job of breaking down the game content and monetization models that exists in the gaming industry. Their categorization makes sense to me and I don’t see anything that has been overlooked.

The high level classifications are:

  • Video game category
  • Industry segments
  • Channel (purchase)
  • Delivery method
  • Business model
  • Payment method

See the flow chart below for details.
