In this video game trends keynote, Satoru Iwata, the CEO of Nintendo, discusses the world of video game development as it was in the past and what the future holds for those looking to work in the field.
What the speaker cites as the most important takeaway from his video game trends keynote, is the future of stable and meaningful employment in video game development. Since consumers can now download games for free, and have a plethora of games to choose from, it is becoming increasingly difficult for game creators to produce a product that will be extremely commercially successful.
As gaming has become increasingly more popular, this growing popularity paired with the amount of choice available to consumers makes it difficult for developers to attain hit status and make a decent living.
