The Web Is Not Dead as a Games Platform.


Portals still have a huge shot in the high-tech, high-stakes world of games.  I just read an article in Entrepreneur Magazine profiling, Peter Relan (Crowdstar, OpenFeint) where he said as much.  Here is the money quote:

"Nobody has yet come up with a way to make large web portals a social game,"  "What kind of games can be played if you're in Hotmail or on Yahoo Messenger? How can that be wrapped up in one of our games?" 

There is huge value to be extracted in the breaking down of the silos between social, mobile and web.  Opportunities abound on the so called "dead" portals.
