How Brexit Will Impact the Entertainment Industry

Article | March 2, 2020

The UK has officially left the EU, well, kind of. Now we are in the next phase of negotiations, a transition period that is supposed to run until January 2021. This means, for the time being, not much will be changing for the UK’s entertainment industry. Filmmakers, musicians, game developers and other creative types will not discover the exact effects of Brexit on the sector until next year, but that doesn’t mean future challenges cannot already be seen in the distance. Whereas some see hurdles to navigate, other professionals in the entertainment see an opportunity, especially with the development in smart 5G technologies, virtual/augmented reality, and a booming new niche of entertainment, in eGaming.

Sometimes the statistics around how many people are streaming music – and how many are paying for it – can lead to confusion and misinterpretation. Recently, for example, we’ve seen one story suggesting that Amazon was “on course to overtake Apple Music” based on comparing an Amazon figure from January 2020 with one from Apple that hadn’t been updated since June 2019. Another story claimed that “Pandora has overtaken Apple for second spot” in subscriber rankings, which mistakenly compared the former’s number of active listeners (most of whom don’t pay) to the latter’s paid subscriber count.

PlayStation VR on the PS5 could ditch Move controllers for finger-tracking

Article | February 19, 2020

Sony got good mileage out of its PlayStation Move motion controllers, which it introduced for the PS3 generation. But it could be moving to something more akin to the Valve Index controller for the upcoming PlayStation 5. A patent application published this month suggests finger-tracking technology could come to the system, possibly for use with PlayStation VR. The application, which was first filed in 2018, is for a hand-worn device that includes sensors to detect individual fingers. A “sensor support” unit is located in the middle and is adjustable to accommodate different hand sizes.
