[Part 1] 10:30 am-11:00 am  "The Nature of the Industrial Revolution of Games"

Game platforms are ever-expanding, and in tandem with the expansion of the customer base, everything—including the content, services and business models—is being forced to change. Will this trend diffuse into chaos or coalesce into a cosmos? These changes seem to be discrete on first sight, but there are key common underlying principles. We will examine the clues so we can consider what we should aim at in the future.

The Latest Global Standard for Producing Music that Wins the Hearts of Fans

Music is an important element that adds charm to games, but it is difficult to measure its cost effectiveness. Future music production requires the game producer and music production company to share a precise concept and create music that fits the game's view of the world. At the same time, coordinators are heavily burdened because they need to use the best composers and artists inside and outside the country. In order to solve this issue, you must know how to satisfy the global standard and enable international collaboration. Mr. Hiroaki Yura from Creative Intelligence Arts will outline the latest global standard for producing music and production methods that increase cost effectiveness.

Future and Reality Pioneered by a New Game Platform
= SNS (tentative title)

Social networking services (SNSs) are the largest trend in the game industry in 2011. They are increasingly being opened worldwide, and game developers are committed to converting their game titles and developing new services for SNSs. On the other hand, SNSs are implementing a wide range of measures such as enhancing platform application development kits, achieving economies of scale in terms of membership by cooperating with SNSs outside the country, and providing new services such as charging within applications. In this session, the key players of major SNS platforms will discuss tomorrow's vision of SNSs.

From Japan to Asia and Asia to the World!
Tips for success in the Asian game market (tentative title)

In recent years, in addition to the ever-growing markets in China, Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan, the game market is expanding in Vietnam and other countries in Southeast Asia. Some Japanese game developers are starting to challenge the American and European markets after launching businesses across Asia. On the contrary, some Asian game companies have entered Japan, focusing on the social games segment that is expanding rapidly in the Japanese market. Where can we find business opportunities in the domestic and international game markets to win the competition? Based on examples of success, the mindset you should have and important points to be considered when conducting game business in Asia will be outlined.
