The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast: Virtual Reality in 2018, with Resolution's Tommy Palm

Download our latest episode now, as we discuss whether it's viable to build a business around VR

A fresh serving of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast is available to download now, and this week we're talking about the state of VR.

For this episode, we're joined by Resolution Games CEO and virtual reality proponent Tommy Palm to ponder the ongoing hurdles the immersive technology must overcome.

At a time when skepticism around the future of VR is on the rise, with with past champions declaring it's nigh on impossible to build a business around it, Resolution Games continues to invest in both virtual and augmented reality projects. The firm recently secured $7.5 million in a seed round, bringing the firm's valuation up to $87.5 million.

But, Palm tells us, it's not easy. On the show we discuss the limited audience and how it might be grown, and the potential for new standalone headsets like Oculus Quest. 

We also touch on the type of experiences that are likely to drive virtual reality going forward, and the opportunities afforded by augmented reality.
