So, 2010 has come to a close (for us, anywho) and it's been a pleasure. There's also been a fuckton of news. Most notably the fall of Infinity Ward, Respawn, ActiBungie, EA and Insomniac, etc.
Quite frankly, I'll remember 2010 as the year when partner schemes between publishers and independent developers, such as EA Partners, Activision, THQ Partners and, to an extent, Bethesda, took hold. Yes, we have had these for years, particularly EA Partners, but they really took shape even more so then before IMO.
Its these deals, and potentially what happened at Infinity Ward, that may shape the industry for years.
What about you guys?
