Instead of focusing on technical issues or game reviews (done so admirably elsewhere) this site gives an overview of research, news and development in the computer games area.

For the casual browser the introduction pages are kept brief with a short opening for each topic and a list of recommended articles and links.
However, you can always dig into the full collection of resources.

In October 2006 we launched a new dynamic version of the site (driven by the Wordpress content management system). You’re comments are most welcome.

i was checking out this site and found it really interesting. I am pursuing my MBA in India and am currently working on a presentation in the Gaming category. We are expected to study the Indian market and propse a relevent brand launch in the market (a dummy project)

Can you let me know if this data is in any way relevant to the Indian market. Can you also let me know of the area (geographical location) of the study.

Hi Jenesia,
i can give you data about the chinese game market, i think the chinese market is much bigger than the Indian.
Maybe you can compare the indian and chinese market / customers in your presentation, this would be a very interesting topic.

Good luck for your presentation,
