In this week's Roundtable, the squad kicks off by discussing what to make of Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's pay no longer being driven by Xbox Game Pass growth targets. We then navigate the waters of FaZe Clan's acquisition by Gamesquare for a largely deflated $17M, especially in the wake of its previous SPAC and esports as a struggling industry. Pivoting to streaming giant Netflix, we dissect its Q3 investor call, where the company outlined its 'crawl, walk, run' approach to gaming, and chat about whether the future for Netflix's gaming ambitions are mobile-first or not. Join us for all the latest games business news with Maria Gillies, Dave Elton, and host Devin Becker.
