Quiz TV captures data which allows the team to identify what, how, and when the game is played. However, rather than being captured and used only internally with pre-release versions of the game, Relentless capture telemetry data remotely from players of the final, released game as they play in their own homes. Sony’s legal department understandably limits what kind of data can be collected, but clearly this still continually produces a vast quantity of data, and Field comments that this does make it difficult to filter and analyse.

The forming theory does not try to describe what makes a good video-game; rather, it focuses on how it is perceived in terms of the forming experience.  20): The premise, if you’re not familiar with the multiplayer modes of Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory, is one of spies versus mercenaries. Three spies must hack three security terminals, controlling from a standard Splinter Cell third-person viewpoint and using many of the main game’s acrobatic tricks.

McAllister and G. R. White Field devised 64 questions for the focus test, which were grouped into the following 8 categories, • • • • • • • • Instructions in the intro sequence (4 questions) Using the game’s menus (12 questions) News page (4 questions) First impressions (16 questions) The overall experience (14 questions) Enjoyment (5 questions) User created quizzes (5 questions) Future purchases (4 questions) Each participant rated their response on a 4-point Likert scale, with an additional non-numerical code for no data.
