Can the gaming events be transposed into a "virtual thing"?

I'm not sure but people who do live streaming on Facebook and youtube get paid through views etc. Not sure though on what's the requirements for you to earn a living there.

To make a living via streaming you have to either be one of the lucky few, famous or be a female that can slap on tons of make up to be classed as "Attractive"

My events crew work cant be done online

It doesn't really affect and I believe that it helps the gaming industry to boost up since most people spent their quarantine days playing games.

I saw a lot in facebook, those who are offering online classes for coding and gaming. So i think gaming will indeed boost since almost everyone are in their homes and youngsters nowadays are into online gaming. And more online games are being created.

I can't speak for online gaming, but I CAN tell you that COVID-19 has caused a windfall in the gaming industry. As perfect examples, I'll direct you to the console sales #s this year. Naturally, it's damned near impossible to find any PS5 or XBOX-X consoles, but until those hit the market, finding a Switch (be it a regular one of the Lite) was like pulling teeth. The gaming industry is making money hand over fist, as are other tech segments like Azure, AWS, and streaming services. People don't like being stuck at home, and have been desperately trying to do something with their time. Gaming has been a great way to fill that void.

Thanks for citing a specific example. I just got a general idea that the gaming industry went uphill due to Covid because of the lockdown. And I think marketing strat will be in this direction too.

Some prices for retro has gone up a bit, some places that sell them have had people come in and buy what ever and a few games for something to do.

The UK has gotten a new version of the feckin virus,

I saw that in the news and the new strain of C-virus is faster to be transmitted. And I think there is also a case in Japan. :confused::(

How are they doing? Are they already treated?
