PC Gaming Alliance Gives Up, Changes Name

A new Open Gaming Alliance website is live as a new home to the organization formerly known as the PC Gaming Alliance (thanks GamePolitics). The PCGA was originally formed in 2008 with a stated goal of helping to reverse a trend where PC game sales were falling, but in their explanation of the name change they seem be admitting failure and moving on, saying that "as the PC is no longer the most dominant gaming form factor" they will now also embrace mobile gaming. Here is word on their new mission:
As the market for digital games grows on a variety of mobile platforms and as the PC is no longer the most dominant gaming form factor, the PC Gaming Alliance, (PCGA), a nonprofit corporation dedicated to driving the worldwide growth gaming, is pleased to announce the name of the organization has been changed to Open Gaming Alliance, or OGA.
