Disney wants your child online: MMOs for tweens (and below)

Early-morning meetings at CES are nice. Your feet aren’t quite falling off your legs, you’re not yet suffering the intestinal distress from eating the crappy (but free) food in the press room, and it’s easy to find your notes since your bag isn’t yet cluttered with free flash drives. At one of these early sessions, I got the chance to talk with the creative director of Pirates of the Caribbean Online, Joe Shochet, and the vice president of Disney Online’s VR Studio, Mike Goslin, in Disney’s suite in Las Vegas.
Interesting article– 3 pages. Good for those following the Dis/MMO future.
Does anyone else find it interesting that Disney/Iger = the only ones outspoken continuously about this market? Even Viacom has gotten relatively quiet with corp views, etc. Thoughts?
p.s. I’m currently on excitement countdown for (Cartoon Network) FusionFall’s sneak preview at GDC this month. I’m so pumped to see that bad boy in action.
