What's the meaning behind our name?

Soul. The gaming media states, "Games either do, or do not, have a soul." Soul is akin to personality. It is the thing that makes it stand out.

The perception of soul in a game is directly tied to the fun-factor of its core play mechanic (what you do as a user while playing).

The more engaging and compelling the play mechanic, the more robust, personable, and memorable the play experience, and the more likely consumers and press will talk about the game.

Vibe. The ways in which players hear and talk about games has changed, significantly, in recent years. Consumers have an internal information filter that is becoming more refined by the day.

Buzz is measured more by traffic volume on social networks, tweets, and hobbyist sites/forums than: Impressions left by ads in magazines consumers aren't reading, banner ads users aren't "clicking-through" on websites, and television commercials the populace skips thanks to DVR.

Soul and Vibe breaks through marketplace clutter and noise via direct-to-consumer tactics that reverberate from the core player to the mainstream gaming audience. Soul and Vibe makes games as fun to talk about, as they are to play.

Tony produced/co-designed the critically acclaimed Stoked: Big Air snowboarding series (Xbox 360) and the million-unit selling title, Summer Sports: Paradise Island (Wii).

Products developed by the internal studio Tony managed secured a capital raise of $12m+ (the second largest raise in the interactive industry for 2006).

He has presented proposals to the likes of Steven Spielberg and Mark Hamill for potential interactive products based on their own intellectual properties.

Gaming Industry Statistics

PricewaterhouseCoopers ("PwC") reports consumer spending on console, mobile, and personal computer game software, topped $56 billion in 2010. This revenue represents:

Games Industry revenue is projected to reach $82 billion by the year 2015, according to PwC.
Sales revenues are receiving increased contributions from digital downloads, game content subscription services, social network games, and "App" sales, as opposed to strictly retail sales.
In 2010, sales of game downloads, game "Apps," and various games played over social networks, earned approximately $15.6 billion in revenue.
  • More than 2X the size of the music industry.
    Almost 1/4 more than what is earned by the global magazine business.
    Nearly 3/5 the size of the entire film industry (including Blu-Ray and DVD sales and box-office receipts).

"The stereotypical image of the gamer - teenaged, male and probably rather nerdy - is no longer accurate, if it ever was."

- The Entertainment Software Association (ESA)

The world's largest gaming market is North America. American consumers are projected to spend $14.1B on games in '12.

Consoles dominate in Britain (the fifth largest gaming market) and are very strong across Europe. In Germany, and many other European countries, computer gaming is dominant.
Computer games, especially those played online, dominate in China and Korea. China is the second largest gaming market in the world, and the fastest growing. South Korea is fourth.
The launch of the Wii (2006) and Xbox 360 Kinect (2010) targeted female, family (specifically "under 12"), and "new adopter" or "mature" players. This broadened the gaming demographic.
  • The average age of game players in the U.S. is 37.
    42% of the U.S. gaming audience is female.
    72% of U.S. households play games (mobile, console, or computer).
