Wondering why we have a games article as Top Story today? Promotions like Zynga’s GagaVille farm for Lady Gaga and music social games companies like MXP4 show how the crossover between music and social gaming is hotting up. Meanwhile, the traditional games industry is keen to learn lessons from the last ten years of the music business. With that in mind, it’s good to see UK Music boss Feargal Sharkey as one of the keynote speakers at the London Games Conference this November. According to the announcement, Sharkey “will deliver an address on lessons that the music industry has learnt during the digital transition. He will talk about the mistakes and the triumphs that got the music industry to where it is today and the prerequisites that an industry like games must have if it is going to be successful in talking to legislators, major corporations as well as the member companies themselves.” Source: Intent Media
