Ethan Beard, Facebook’s director of partnerships, told attendees at Facebook’s F8 conference that the company has more gamers than Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony combined. Ethan believes that the secret behind Facebook’s success is that their gaming apps have been built around people, rather than graphics or narrative.
“Social design inside social gaming has driven fantastic growth.”
“It’s revolutionising gaming. We have over 200 million social gamers on Facebook every month; that’s more Facebook gamers than the Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo combined.”
