They are connecting their games with websites. He mentions the game Skate. It has a video editing function, so that you can record your skate tricks, and upload them to a site. There you can share the clips with friends, on facebook, del.icio.us etc.
They have ads in their games, a sponsorship deal with Intel, for instance. The target audience is well defined.
