Games for Health Conference Slated for End of May

May 3, 2010 -

The sixth annual Games for Health Conference will run May 25-27 in Boston at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel.

Backed by the Pioneer Portfolio of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the conference “focuses on supporting ideas that may lead to breakthroughs in the future of health and health care.”

Dr. Richard Marks, a Sony Computer Entertainment Senior Researcher, will kick off the conference with a keynote examining the “Mind-Body Experience of Sony Move” and the relationships between gaming, play and exercise.  All told, over 100 sessions will be served up, including “What Kids Get Out of Video Games: The Presence of Games in Healthy Child Development” with Dr. Cheryl Olsen and “Exploring the Concept of Healthy Videogaming & Gamers” with Games for Health Founder, Ben Sawyer.

The actual conference runs May 26 & May 27, but the week is rounded out with additional activities such as Serious Games Day on Monday, May 24, while Tuesday will feature an iPhone game developer boot camp and a symposium on emerging markets in games.

Until lobbying is a hanging offense I choose anarchy! CP/IP laws should not effect the daily life of common people! http://zippydsmlee.wordpress.com/


Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

There is no one behind the curtain, the hive mind has spoken.

I believe the past tense of sing is sung and general people don't sing their blog posts because the bandwidth costs of an mp3 is a lot higher than plain text.

You could just stick it in a toaster oven for about 5 minutes. By then, it'll probably be singed.

Nice one. I didn't catch that alternate meaning.

quiknkoldlets take a moment to share some gaming memories, shall we?09/23/2014 - 5:28pm
MechaTama31I buy stuff off the eshop because it gives me the convenience of a flashcart without the guilt.09/23/2014 - 5:03pm
Montewell thanks for the info Eisen; try that the next time i need something off the eshop09/23/2014 - 3:54pm
james_fudgere: MP, i've sent tech support a note - thank you :)09/23/2014 - 3:14pm
IanCNah that wasnt directed at you Andrew :)09/23/2014 - 3:00pm

MaskedPixelanteDear GP, something called "doubleverify" is causing some nasty browser issues on my end. Probably one of your ads.09/23/2014 - 2:36pm
Andrew EisenOh hell no. No, it took Nintendo a dog's age just to get to the point its competitors have been at for a while! (And it's still not there yet, in a lot of respects.)09/23/2014 - 2:26pm
IanCSame as PSN handles it, fi you are trying to say only nintendo do that.09/23/2014 - 2:23pm
Andrew EisenYou have to try to purchase something first. Pick a game, hit purchase and if your wallet doesn't have enough to cover it, you'll be given an option to "add exact funds" or something like that.09/23/2014 - 2:05pm
MonteI have seen no option for that on my 3DS; anytime i want to add funds it only gives me the option to add in denominations of $10, 20, 50 or 10009/23/2014 - 2:03pm
IanCWhat Andrew Wilson said. PSN is the same when you make a purchase over a certain price (£5 in the UK)09/23/2014 - 2:02pm
Andrew EisenNeither eShop charges sales tax either. At least in California.09/23/2014 - 2:00pm
Andrew EisenBoth Wii U and 3DS eShops allow you to add funds in the exact amount of whatever's in your shopping cart. If your game is $39.99, you can add exactly $39.99.09/23/2014 - 1:57pm
Infophile@Matthew Wilson: As I understand it, any regulations to force tax online would also set up an easy database for these stores to use, minimizing overhead.09/23/2014 - 1:30pm
MonteReally, the eshop just does next to nothing to make buying digitally advantagous for the customer. Its nice to have the game on my 3DS, but i can get more for less buying a physical copy at retail. And that's not even counting buying used09/23/2014 - 1:18pm
MonteIanC, The Eshop wallet system only lets you add funds in set denominations and the tax makes sure you no longer have round numbers so you ALWAYS loose money. A $39.99 game for instance requires you to add $50 instead of just $4009/23/2014 - 1:13pm
Matthew Wilsonbut thats just it those sites, even the small ones, sell all over the country.09/23/2014 - 11:12am
Neenekoeither that or it would follow the car model of today. big ticket items are taxed according to your residence, not where you buy them.09/23/2014 - 11:07am
