In order to show their best moves for International Dance Day, a team from Newcastle took to the streets to show off their moves. Gaming geeks were involved as well as an ex-Toon player and uploaded the moves to an online video. A studio for Newcastle games were also involved in the celebratory dance. Ever since it was released, millions of people have been watching it, making it an internet sensation.
The main inspiration for the dance was Just Dance 3 which was a game that they had created for Play station Move games console. On of the producers at the studio, Lorna Evans, said the main purpose of the video was to announce to the entire world that the top most selling games were created by gaming geniuses in Tyneside. The producer said that it would make everyone laugh as well as have fun watching it. They thus decided to come up with a video that featured gaming geeks dancing. She admitted that some of the dancing resembles dad dancing.
The team comprises of 144 members. Among the members is the Reflections staff, dance school students and Gordies that were real. The film was recorded in different locations such as the Quayside in Newcastle, the beach and the Angel of the North. Their choreographer was from Newcastle Dance Center, Hayley Conway. She helped them to come up with a dance routine that featured moves from the Play station game.
They also featured some guest stars from ex-NUFC such as Terry Johnson and Sandy Kerr who is a world class surfer. They also went ahead and made the video more interesting by featuring three grannies that were boogying. The producer had no idea that one of the fishermen had actually participated in Britain’s got talent. They only realized afterwards. The directors and editors of the video were students at Sunderland University.
Digital World Research, a leading consumer attitude research firm who largely focus on the gaming industry, have said that Facebook is set to lose out on social gaming innovation. Facebook has close ties with Zynga, and somehow, Zyngas games are very often promoted subtly, yet a lot more, than other gaming platforms.
When using Facebook, often you’ll get a status update about a friend playing a Zynga game – i’m sure you too are sick of receiving Castleville and CityVille notifications – but do you ever get notifications about other non-Zynga Facebook games? You could be playing Gardens of Time by Playdom, or Digital Chocolate’s Zombie Lane.
This segregation of Zynga-domination and little knowledge of non-Zynga games, is leading to other games developers to not bother working with Facebook, as Facebooks love affair with Zynga seems to dominate the Facebook games world. Gaming and Tech analyst P.J McNealy of Digital World Research said:
“Facebook’s attitude is that it doesn’t need to accomodate or work with game developers. We have talked with a wide range of developers… they’re frustrated because they perceive that Facebook devotes its resources and [its] promotions to Zynga, giving little incentive for developers to engage with Facebook.”

Online, gaming and music industry competition is always high, with companies fighting tooth and nail to succeed and survive. Within any business market, the competition can change and move so swiftly. Its becoming more and more common for internationally known gaming, music and tech companies to be in the news because of business competition. Two companies recently to hit the headlines are Netflix and HBO, who are fighting to eradicate each other in a sentimental battle of business wills.
Essentially. HBO won’t sell their DVDs to Netflix. Not a biggy really? Maybe this is just Netflix getting a power complex as they can freely purchase DVDs and the like from pretty much all other legal resellers. This is just a melodrama from the start of this year, really. To add to this, they’ve banned Netflix from buying their Blu-Rays too. This has caused industry-wide controversy, as it does effect other the sales of other sellers and streaming services.
Will Netflix lose customers? Maybe. We can only wait and see. Perhaps this will boost HBOs sales of discs as it is currently easiest to acquire them directly form the source. They are likely to not renew their contracts with Netflix either to boost the value of their content.Unfortunately though, there will not be the large discounts that Netflix offers.
Intriguingly though, Netflix are now expanding to produce their very own content. And the overall message from this move? Perhaps the only way to survive in such a deadly industry is to stick to original and unique products and services. In time, the results will shine clearly through and the winning company will appear.
