You would be amazed how much goes into making gaming better. My interview with the platform lead behind the New Xbox One Experience: http://www.fastcodesign.com/3053500/how-microsoft-created-a-new-xbox-experience
The release of the redesigned Xbox One interface shows Microsoft's support for both the old and the new. It was a long path to get there.

For PC gamers, the LAN party has changed over the years. Now it's about eSports and fancy rigs. My story for Intel and Kill Screen. https://iq.intel.com/the-evolution-of-the-lan-party/
Eschewing party favors and balloons for processing power and bandwidth, a LAN party puts PCs and players to the test.

I talk to Shawn Layden, CEO of SCEA, about his career at Sony and how PlayStation is expanding beyond games, without abandoning them. http://www.fastcompany.com/3047969/
The CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America hasn't been on the job long, but is integral to the reimagining the PlayStation platform.
