UKIE Doubles Membership Numbers in Less Than a Year

August 12, 2011 -

UK video game industry trade group UKIE claims that it has doubled up its membership over the last year. Its membership ranks have grown to around 86 members, the group announced today. UKIE, which used to be mostly dedicated to game publishers, now includes developers, multi-media platforms and broadcasters, distributors, accredited games design and animation universities, retailers, media owners, service companies and the three console platform holders.

"Doubling the size of our membership in less than a year means that we can now truly say that UKIE represents all parts of the interactive entertainment industry," said chairman Andy Payne.

"We are now no longer pre-dominantly a publisher trade body, as for the first time non-publisher interactive entertainment businesses make up the majority of UKIE membership. We look forward to this new balance of membership being reflected in the UKIE Board elections later this year."

Andrew EisenIt's a cute joke to make but it’s important to note that the person's view is not gendered. It's not about not supporting a female dev, it's about not supporting GamerGate. Gender is irrelevant in this case.11/26/2014 - 1:10pm
Neo_DrKefkaToo add what Andrew said about the The Ralph Retort it is no different from what you read at Gawker. I remember reading The Ralph Retort on how Boogie was the bad guy from being on the fence until he jumped to the GamerGate side.11/26/2014 - 12:42pm
Wonderkarpthat, I do not know the answer too. I see some people saying they wont vote for her because of it. I'm pointing out the irony.11/26/2014 - 12:31pm
Andrew EisenIs this call to not vote for her game widespread or is it just the one tweet from the one guy?11/26/2014 - 12:19pm
Wonderkarphttps://twitter.com/GMShivers here's her twitter if you wanna look. I didnt see any harassment. 11/26/2014 - 12:07pm
Andrew EisenI'm just curious what kind of GamerGater the dev is. Does she harass people? If so, I could understand the desire not to support her. "Very Pro-GG" doesn't tell me anything.11/26/2014 - 12:05pm
NeenekoWhile boycotts have their place, small ones like that just hurt small producers for no real gain. It is just being petty.11/26/2014 - 12:02pm
WonderkarpI'm addicted too their deals :P When I find an alternative, I'll drop Kotaku :P. you Tease cause you care though :)11/26/2014 - 11:57am
Andrew EisenWarning, light teasing incoming. Ahem. So, not only could you not go a full four hours without reading The Ralph Retort, but you read Kotaku? A site you say you're actively trying to convince others to stay away from? Wow!11/26/2014 - 11:56am
Wonderkarpi love nintendo <311/26/2014 - 10:27am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.siliconera.com/2014/11/26/pokemon-omega-rubyalpha-sapphire-sold-3-million-worldwide-three-days/ More good Nintendo news that I can't wait to be turned into "NINTENDO IS DOOMED" articles by certain outlets.11/26/2014 - 10:03am
Wonderkarpthough its kinda ironic, as this cartoon shows. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B3XCIeQCUAAWWkv.jpg cause I thought it was about wanting more women in games?11/26/2014 - 9:39am
Wonderkarphuh. thats weird... http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=34087710511/26/2014 - 9:37am
Wonderkarpyeah. even being pro gg, I still dont boycott. Its stupid. I still go to Kotaku. Though I have a BS filter up. But I am addicted to their deals. 11/26/2014 - 9:36am
MaskedPixelanteI dunno, it looks like a Modern Warfare clone. Probably because the link you posted links to a screencap from Modern Warfare 2.11/26/2014 - 9:34am
james_fudgeI think boycotts arer wrong, almost always..11/26/2014 - 9:33am
WonderkarpI voted for it. looks cute. wish it was on ipad11/26/2014 - 9:30am
WonderkarpAntiGG people on twitter are calling for a boycott of an Indie game created by somebody on the "Blocklist". telling people not to vote for it on Steam Greenlight. Its a cute game about plants! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=3408771011/26/2014 - 9:22am
NeenekoWhich ties into a rather vicious cycle of mutual distrust.11/26/2014 - 8:28am
