While in Las Vegas for CES, UploadVR visited The VOID’s location in The Venetian for Ralph Breaks VR.There’s a range of dimensions to visit from Utah-based The VOID, including Ghostbusters and Star Wars. Four people at a time can don VR headsets and backpacks to become ghostbusters or stormtroopers at locations in some big cities like New York, London or Los Angeles. Last year The VOID partnered with Ninja Theory, which was bought by Microsoft, to create Nicodemus: Demon of Evanishment. I met that startling monster in a previous VOID trip and, if you get the chance, it’s a terrifying journey that incites fear to an incredible degree.In contrast, Ralph Breaks VR is easily The VOID’s friendliest dimension families can visit.

This time Amazon really does have Bond in its sights

Article | May 20, 2021

MGM, which holds the largest film and TV library in Hollywood, is finally in play – and likely to be acquired by tech major and video streaming behemoth Amazon. With a rumoured price tag of $9 billion, the deal, while substantial, is merely equivalent to 8.3% of Amazon’s Q1 2021 earnings of $108.5 billion. Indeed, the 44% year-on-year (YoY) increase for its Q1 results alone would pay for the deal more than four times over. When it comes to investment capital to deploy, the tech majors led by Amazon and Apple are in a financial class of their own. This is the kind of deal that helps to explain why AT&T was so keen cut its losses and incur a $66 billion loss on its Warner Media assets by merging the former Time Warner media major with Discovery for $43 billion in cash and receiving 71% in equity in the new combined entity in return.

One might imagine that videogames would be the least affected branch of the entertainment world. Self-isolating in front of the TV screen does pair well with quarantines. While the industry remains one of the few not completely stunted during these uncertain times, the coronavirus has indeed affected players, developers, and studios, both for better and worse.
