For Gamasutra's Alternative Funding week, we're revisiting a GDC Europe panel where Konami, Microsoft and Capcom make cases for a publisher's added value in an age of self-publishing.
At GDC Europe 2012, a panel of publishers Konami, Microsoft and Capcom, along with investment firm CFC Capital, met to discuss where publishing is headed, why there are fewer bets being made in triple-A, and why publishers are still necessary even in an age where self-publishing is easier than ever.
The panel, Ask the Publishers: Adapting and Succeeding in a Changing Games Industry
, is presented in its entirety above for free courtesy of the GDC Vault
