We also speak to anti-piracy firm Denuvo about its war against games pirates and to Trion Worlds' CEO Scott Hartsman about his debut in China with voxel-style online title Trove.
Elsewhere, ERA's Kim Bayley discusses the latest results from the retail association's unique consumer tracking study.
We also talk to Variable State's co-founder Jonathan Burroughs about the latest indie hit, Virginia.
