Epic Games’ design director Cliff Bleszinski has encouraged the games industry to embrace the hacking community.
The Gears of War man was talking about the chances of seeing more user generated content options appearing in Gears of War 3. His comments come following the security breaches of Sony’s PSN and the Square Enix and Codemasters websites.
I was on a panel with Kudo [Tsunoda, Kinect creative director], and we were talking about Kinect Fun Labs, and he was saying they’re embracing a lot of the homebrew and hacker stuff that’s going on with Kinect,” he said.
Generally speaking when it comes to hackers, you want to embrace a lot of what they are doing instead of fighting it. I think the industry is slowly learning that.”
