How Gaming’s Big Gamble Is Paying Off

Play Vault:

"If you’re a gamer, then you’re no doubt accustomed to the way the lines that separate the world of videogames from other entertainment industries frequently blur.

This blurring allows franchises to straddle various forms of media comfortably. Indeed, it’s now becoming increasingly commonplace for a franchise’s canon to be spread in this way, using everything from games to films, through comics to books, to tell different parts of a greater tale.

However, there are also other, less publicised, areas where gaming’s influence is frequently felt, such as gambling. And as gambling moves increasingly online, so this partnership is evolving." (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4, Culture, Tomb Raider)

Oh wow. It's always great to see an article about video games when they cross into other spheres. SEGA in particular is willing to go weird places- TOYlet- so it's no surprise that they would venture here. Interested in seeing how these two subjects either converge or diverge as time passes.

Not one for gambling myself, but a pretty interesting article anyway!
