Future of MMOs Overview

Posted Apr 13, 2010 by Jon Wood

Future of MMOs Overview

Last week, we presented our PAX East Future of MMOs panel on video. Today, MMORPG.com's Michael Bitton summarizes a chunk of the action for those who may not have wanted to sit through the video.

This year was the first year that PAX has made it over to the east coast, kicking off the inaugural PAX East show at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts. Gaming fanatics on the east coast have been longing for a show to call their own, and outside of the New York Comic Con, we didn't really have much. Not to miss out on the occasion, MMORPG.com was on hand to cover the event and we even had our own panel. Our panel was scheduled for Day 3 (Sunday), and focused on the future of the MMO gaming scene. Our very own Garrett Fuller moderated the panel, which included notable guests such as Paul Barnett of BioWare/Mythic, Turbine's Craig Alexander, Sanrio Digital's Bob Ferrari, and baseball legend turned MMO developer Curt Schilling of 38 Studios.

Day 3 of any show can always be iffy for panel turnout, but an hour before the event we were more than relieved to see that the line to the Naga Theater where the panel would take place had already begun to snake around the floor a good bit. Turnout was great and we filled the entire theater. The panel began with some brief introductions from Garrett and the panelists and then, much to the crowd's (pleasant) surprise, we turned the panel right over to Q&A.
