Stargate Worlds VP Speaks

No stranger to the gaming industry, Senior Vice President of Firesky Operations, Joe Ybarra has a wealth of experience to share. Talking with Ten Ton Hammer he reveals the long term marketing plan of Stargate Worlds, how their beta program will work, and what it is like working with such an amazingly popular theme. Don't miss not only his insight but brief mentions of when Cheyenne Mountain will discuss their next project.

The beta process comes up and he agrees that methods and expectations have changed over the years moving from a pure testing environment to almost a preview. "The first task is getting a customer base," he says, "which is why you saw the announcement we made and started registration for the beta. That's attracted a significant number of people but in addition to that, the MGM folks ran a contest for us." The goal of the contest and the announcements were to build a mailing list of customers to select beta participants from. He explains they'll be working with MGM, Fox, the SciFi channel, and other entities to continue to grow that mailing list.
