Come kick off the Xbox @ GDC 2018 show, with a preview of some of the cool things the Xbox team will be sharing throughout the week and then hone in sharing data and best practices from one of the best digital stores in the world. Presenters will focus on sharing data that attendees don't usually see – such as what genre generates the best long tail sales, how can they best model revenue predictions for the life of their game, and how they can avoid simple mistakes that can cripple sales. Data will be drawn from more than 4 years of sales results on Xbox across more than 700 games!
Developers will hear first hand how successful the ID@Xbox program has been and how it continues to be a community effort, driven by passion, creativity, and the knowledge that success here unlocks huge opportunity for game studios of all sizes.
This talk will also summarize Microsoft's vision for how we are helping game developers do what they do best: create.
Producers and independent studios looking to build games for Xbox or Xbox Live enabled games for Windows know that Chris Charla's opening talk at GDC is an essential must-see topic to get a feel for our presence at the show.
