Prime time for video game players

Techstination feature for Wednesday, November 23, 2011

It’s prime time for video game players.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      New versions of top selling video game franchises are hitting the market this month and that means gamers may be too busy for turkey dinners and such.   Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Saints Row The Third, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword,  Assassin’s Creed Revelations and The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim are just some of the hottest new titles.   At Elder Scrolls maker Bethesda Softworks, VP Pete Hines says the game isn’t endless, but…

“You know there’s three, four, five hundred hours of game play there.   So out of that, we don’t expect everybody to want to give up three or four or five hundred hours of their lives to the game.  But within there, you can find your own way, decide what kind of dungeons you want to explore, what kind of quests  you want to take on and really play the game your own way at your own pace.”

So maybe the gamers in the family can take a break for dinner.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
