Vivendi Games boss predicts revolution in mobile gaming

New technologies will see killer apps emerging on phones, says Hack

Vivendi Games CEO Bruce Hack has reaffirmed the company's commitment to the mobile market, telling our sister site GamesIndustry.biz that there is a "revolution coming to the two billion mobile handsets that are out there."

Speaking at the E3 trade show in Los Angeles earlier this month, Hack commented that he "feels very good" about the progress of the company's mobile division, Vivendi Games Mobile, which was featured on the firm's stand at the show.

"They're showing really lovely product, we feel, and are beginning in the background to define the next generation of mobile games," he commented. "So, as I walk through my own booth, in the corner is the mobile division - but I feel very good about that, because they're taking the first couple of steps."

Hack believes that the prospects for the mobile space are enormous, highlighting technologies including "3G, the ability of peer to peer play, the ability of location based games, and the ability to interconnect to other platforms" as factors which will lead to the creation of "killer apps" for mobiles.
