Electronic Entertainment Design and Research (EEDAR), a research firm specializing in the video game industry, launched GamePulse, a web-based subscription service designed to provide insight on "macro-level trends and micro-level details" for video game titles, publishers, developers and console platforms.
GamePulse contains information on over 4,500 released titles, 750 upcoming games, 800 developers, and 150 publishers. EEDAR intends to keep the service "updated continually" with new data.
According to the company, GamePulse is integrated with its own database, enabling clients to identify up to 15,000 attributes for every title in the system. Thus, EEDAR can provide information as broad as past and upcoming titles for a specific company, as well as more detailed data, like different multiplayer modes in Mature rated action games on a per console basis.
"Despite the video game industry being near recession proof, increasing development costs and overall competition in the marketplace demand that investors, publishers and developers intensify their due diligence if they wish to maintain profit levels," says EEDAR CEO and president Geoffrey Zatkin
He continues: "With its extensive data coverage, detailed analytics and ability to converge numerous data sources into a single application, GamePulse delivers fast, accurate and meaningful insight to the many issues which must be addressed during the greenlight, development and marketing stages of a video game's production.
