The latest episode of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast is available to download now, in which Chris, Brendan and James take a deeper look at the trends seen across the most recent wave of financial reports.
These represent the first quarter that can be directly compared to a period where the majority of the world was in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While most major companies saw at least one key metric decline year-on-year, there's more to the numbers than other reports might have you believe.
The discussion also explores Nintendo's strategy for the remainder of the Switch's lifecycle and what it might do beyond that, as well as how Sony can reinvigorate PlayStation Plus (if it even needs to do so).
