Read how the Yogscast went from anonymity to the UK’s No.1 YouTube channel in the latest MCV

Want the skinny on UK porn filters blocking games? How about Konami’s rebirth of PES? Or how to license your game for big bucks? Then you need the latest MCV.

We talk to Yogscast’s CEO Mark Turpin and GM Rich Keith on the platform’s rise to success as the UK’s most viewed YouTube channel and why video content is an opportunity publishers can no longer ignore.

Elsewhere, Konami’s EU boss Shinji Hirano tells us about the publisher’s big plans for 2014, from its new EU office and UK studio, to the return of Metal Gear Solid and its plans for PS4 and Xbox One.

There’s also advice from the experts behind some of the best-selling game brands on how they’re cashing in on their IP through the world of licensing and merchandise – and how you can, too.
