The folks at MSNBC have launched a new effort called NewsWare, an attempt to blend the news of the day with the growing interest in casual gaming.
As YPulse points out:
“Although I can’t imagine getting my headlines while trying to race against time to destroy all of the orbs, it might be an appealing to stay informed to a Wii-obsessed teenage boy.”
There’s been lots of talk about the slow death of traditional newspapers and the evening network news, especially among younger people. Will gaming be the thing that keeps America’s youth informed on current events? I’m not sure this is the answer but it can’t hurt to try.
