Computer Games

More money is spent on it than going to the cinema or renting videos, exports of it bring in more than either the television or film industries, Britain is the third biggest market in the world for it, but one nation bans it altogether.

What is it? The answer is computer games and that’s the subject for today’s Shop Talk. We’ll be asking why the industry makes so few products which appeal to women and whether computer gamers can ever lose their geeky image.

Guests:

Rob Fahey - Editor, gamesindustry.biz

Elaine Devereux - T-Mobile

David Wilson - Sony Computer Entertainment

Ed Watson - Cyberathletes Professional League

Anna Larke - Games designer, Argonaut
