changing the game

Greetings Falcon fans! It has been a busy month and you can expect lots of exciting news in the weeks to come. If you haven't checked out our recent press, visit the News section of our website to view recent articles from BusinessWeek, and additional post-E3 press raves.

For those of you who follow the game industry news, there has been a lot of discussion lately on the state of the business. Analysts and pundits alike are debating the merits of Sony's PS3 strategy, and many are questioning where the next real innovation in gaming is going to come from. What do you think? Bored with the current offerings? Can't wait to break-open the piggy bank for a PS3?

Of course, our response is to introduce people to the Falcon and the concept of touch in games. Whether you're a hardcore FPS player, or like more casual games, 3D touch adds a whole new dimension to your experience, and presents tremendous new creative and business opportunities. Everyone who got the chance to try the Falcon at E3, or at another event, may already see the potential, but we still have lots of work to do to get more developers to integrate our technology into their games. Novint will be at CES in January and at GDC (Game Developer Conference) in March, to continue evangelizing 3D touch. In the meantime, we'd love to hear what games you think would make cool haptic titles. We’d also like to enlist those of you who’ve tried the Falcon to tell people about it. I know some of you have already posted your thoughts on blogs or in response to reviews. Thanks. We really want to bring something new to gaming, and we can’t do it without your support. We've been truly amazed and gratified by the incredible enthusiasm and support we've received so far and want to keep hearing what you think. If you're a developer, or know one, or if your name is Gabe Newell or John Carmack :-), talk to us about titles you have or are working on (games@novint.com). Keep posting!
