Press Row Podcast: An industry in flux

By on @richgrisham

The video game industry continues to go through a transformation that few saw coming and many continue to struggle with. From the games media to developers and publishers, the traditional rules have changed so many degrees that it’s more difficult than ever to determine your true audience and their priorities.

In this week’s episode, Rich Grisham sits down with USgamer Editor in Chief Kat Bailey and Polygon Weekend Editor Owen Good to chat about the impact of all these changes. How do sports games get covered in 2017? What is their relationship to publishers and developers? What does the audience want to hear and see? It’s a fascinating, honest look at how all of us that love sports games are impacted by these changes – for good and otherwise.
