Big Tech & gaming platform wars
Gaming platforms have traditionally been defined by their hardware, from arcades to personal computers and home consoles and now mobile phones. But cloud gaming, the rise of AR/VR and the promise of the metaverse have begun to redefine the very nature of gaming platforms and revolutionize the nature of play.

In this event we’ll discuss what new platforms and business models might replace the old guard, which companies might stay on top and who risks losing out on the next wave.
