Ian Livingstone OBE, Life President, Eidos, talks to telecoms.com about his desire for service providers to focus on increasing speed and reducing latency, to cater for more graphical intensity in games. Livingstone eventually sees cloud gaming taking over from optical drives but only when the required speed boost has been realised.

Games industry is “fighting broadband”

"We have to worry about broadband when we should be thinking about making better games,” said Livingstone

The games industry is the biggest entertainment sector in the world and its principal problem today is the limitations placed on it by broadband networks. That was the message delivered to delegates on Wednesday morning by Ian Livingstone, life president of game developer Eidos and one of the founding fathers of the games industry.
