Why we're still buying Skyrim | Podcast

Latest episode available now, also discusses the wave of NFT name-dropping in recent AAA earnings calls

You can now download the latest episode of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast, in which the team gathers around their mics to discuss the biggest stories from the business of video games.

This week, we start with a discussion on the wave of name-dropping for NFTs and blockchains in major publishers' recent financial results - a trend on which we have made our stance very clear.

As our contributing editor Rob Fahey observes, there is something of an agenda behind why even the execs that are somewhat skeptical about this new technology are referencing it in their earnings calls.

Then we move to the upcoming release of Skyrim: Anniversary Edition and the Grand Theft Auto Trilogy, and explore why re-releases of certain titles - even those that have been made widely available over the years - continue not only to sell, but also appeal to us personally.
