With all of the major console and PC video game companies in Los Angeles (Electronic Arts, Activision, THQ, Blizzard), it only makes sense to discuss how more and more games are bringing in aspects of social media to enhance game play. We’ll discuss this, the evolution of casual social games in Facebook (ex: Mob Wars) and Twitter (ex: Spymaster) and how social and mobile are key areas of development for game companies.
It’s social, it’s portable, and allows for playing and sharing video with your friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter. You can download and organize your favorite videos from thousands of web sites. Then watch them anytime, anywhere you want. Their new video converter makes it easy to copy online video to your iPod, cell phone, Xbox, PS3 or other favorite device. It is currently available for the PC platform; the Mac version is due Q1, 2010. RealPlayer SP (the SP is for social and portable) is a transcoding engine that lets you grab videos from sites like YouTube and view them on your Blackberry, Zune, iPhone, etc. You can share individual videos in one-click to Twitter and Facebook. There is a browser plugin that lets you download the movie you are watching in one click, then choose the device where you want to watch it. It also saves a library of videos so you can make your own playlists.
