The Obsolete Gamer Show: The Business of Gaming with William Volk

Gaming is serious business not only within the game, but in the real world as millions can be made and lost in the industry. Sometimes, it gets complicated and that’s when we turn to legendary game developer and CCO of Playscreen William Volk to school us in the ways of the business of gaming.

We talk with William Volk about the PC dominance in revenue over mobile and even console games and why gamers are willing to pay for DLC or episodic games, but not in mobile in app purchases.

We also talk about EA pulling out of E3 and how not only this convention but perhaps all gaming conventions may just not be worth it to triple A developers.
