Remote control for virtualized desktops

The European Computer Trade Show (ECTS) in Docklands was a very low key affair with hardly any of the monster sized stands usually associated with the major European event.

There was so little buzz about the show that the best attendees could say was that it represented a return to the early days when the event was all about 'businesses interacting' rather than who could build the biggest, loudest stand.

Not really a good sign because everyone who could build a big, loud stand didn't bother exhibiting.

Show organisers CMP helpfully compiles a list of the leading companies in the UK games market based on their editorial impact in the UK media - basically a guide to their PR profile.

This is the top 10

  1. Electronic Arts
  2. Eidos
  3. Nintendo
  4. Sony Computer Entertainment
  5. Sega
  6. Activision
  7. Take 2 Interactive Software
  8. UbiSoft Entertainment
  9. Microsoft
  10. Infogrames


Out of the 10 only UbiSoft had a stand at ECTS. ®
