Tech Industry: Curt Schilling talks about 38 Studios

2:16 /

At CES 2008, Natali Del Conte talks to World Series champion Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling about his game development and publishing company, 38 Studios.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV; I'm here with World Series baseball player Kurt Schilling who you may not think of a technology person but we spotted him here at CES so we asked him to tell us what he's doing here. So what are you doing here? >> Kurt: I'm here on behalf of 38 studios which is a software development company I founded about a year and a half ago and this is our second CES and we're here doing what everybody else is doing--checking out some of the new tech and having a whole lot of meetings. >> Natali: How has the conference been for you so far? >> Kurt: Busy. In the last 12 months we've grown by leaps and bounds, our partnerships and relationships have grown as much if not more, and this is kind of a chance for us to get out to the West coast and tie up some loose ends, open some new relationships and continue to work on partnerships. >> Kara: You're still in the development stages of your games right? So you don't have any titles out yet? >> Kurt: We do not have any titles; we're ending one of the early phases of development on the first IP that we're developing. >> Kara: When can we expect some games? >> Kurt: We're targeting late 10 as our launch of our initial IP with a lot of stuff coming before that. >> Kara: Your website says that you develop your games on the concept of wouldn't it be cool if. So is there anything that you've seen here where that kind of changes what you might want to do next? >> Kurt: The how cool would it be if thing has always been one of the staples of the founding of the company but I'm a gamer so yeah I see a lot of stuff here. Technology wise, absolutely there's a lot of stuff happening; we're operating from the standpoint of tech will never drive decisions on our product because that can be a double-edge sword so yeah, there's a lot of cool stuff here, there's a lot of technology over the next couple of years that will absolutely enhance what we're doing, but we're kind of here as gamers here on the floor and handling business up in the suites. >> Kara: Also you're a blogger. Have you been to the blog house at all? >> Kurt: I have not. Blogging is something new to me I got into this year. It has definitely turned out to be very different than what I expected it to be. The commitment, the response is pretty overwhelming but it's fun, I enjoy it and I've actually kind of learned that there's a cult blogging in this industry that if you don't know who they are you're out of the loop so I'm kind of learning about that one as we go along too. >> Kara: That's true, be careful with that one. Well thanks for telling us about your trip to CES. I'm Natali Del Conte with CNET TV with Kurt Schilling. ^M00:02:13 [ Music ] ^M00:02:15
