MIT’s Sloan School of Management has designed a new web-based simulation program, known as Platform Wars.
The simulation is meant to imitate the competitive video game world, and users play the part of senior management within a prominent video game hardware platform producer. To win, participants must rightly make decisions involving their business. It can be played individually against simulated competitors.
Platform Wars was designed originally to inform business students at MIT of the challenges involved in the video game industry, but is now available for the public to download at no cost here.
