Wonder what the heck is up with GameSpot’s wild stock ride? You are not alone. Gaming business-focused podcast Virtual Economy does a great dive into the topic which involves a daytrader/Reddit war that at some point is sure to lose some folks a lot of money (the chat begins at 1:35:54). But before they land on that topic, hosts Michael and Amanda cover a recent slate of acquisitions and studio investments, and Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold pricing changes (and the reversal of those changes).
The Virtual Economy podcast is a year-ish old and is a very worthwhile sub if your interests lean into the more business side of the games industry. Hosts Michael and Amanda also run gaming industry consulting firm F-Squared.
