Cross-platform Integration in gaming...

    Last night I had this crazy vivid dream where I was playing a game that was persistent across PC, handheld, and console... and the handheld was GPS/RFID-aware, with motion detection... the handheld was almost like a wiimote and a BB mixed. Me and a friend we're "battling" against each other throughout the day with our respective devices (the game itself was almost like Pokemon or The World Ends With You, but with a combination of motion detection and controller-like actions), via peer-to-peer Wifi.

    The actions and gaming that I did throughout the day while working and running around, etc were uploaded automatically into the console once I got home (Wifi? Bluetooth?), and equated into in-game rewards/XP on the more robust console experience that I played at home.

    It was all one game, I was playing the same game all day while doing the rest of my daily life stuff... and it played out like almost an ARG-RPG hybrid. Crazy.

    Thinking about it, though - all this technology already exists between console/handheld/smartphone/PC... all that's needed is standardization/integration technology and the creative narrative.

    Hrm, it was a weird dream... I have a feeling I'll see this kind of thing come out of Japan in teh coming few years... it felt like a Nintendo kind of convergence product.
