Eidos Executive Tells Broadband Providers They’re Holding Back Gaming
Longtime Eidos executive and co-founder of Games Workshop Ian Livingstone has told broadband providers that they’re holding back the gaming industry.
Speaking at the Broadband World Forum on Wednesday in a 20-minute presentation titled “Super Fast Broadband for Super Fast Games Market,” Livingstone told the telecom operators in the audience that “what we need is super-speed broadband” to keep up with the industry’s growing demands.
“Big games need big broadband. It’s kind of crazy that we’re fighting broadband the whole time in our industry. You’re kind of holding us back in many respects. We want to do more.
“Gamers are the most demanding of Internet users. Game developers will all be pushing the limit of what technology has to offer. So, you must plan for what you can’t predict as well as what you can. Super-fast games will drive demand for super-fast broadband, so, ISPs, please do not rest on your laurels.”
