- PlaySide has entered into a mixed reality game development deal with Meta
- K2Fly software will be used across all of Mineral Resources’ iron ore and lithium operations
- Technology One reports record profit, record revenue and record SaaS fees for 13Thursday year in a row
Video game developer PlaySide Studios (ASX:PLY) signed a game development deal with Meta to create an interactive mixed reality software product that will be playable on its Quest suite of virtual reality devices.
“This agreement represents the next evolution of our work at the studio as we leverage our capabilities to conceptualize and develop exciting games in a revenue-sharing agreement with a leading global technology company,” said CEO Gerry Sakkas.
“Meta is bringing virtual reality and mixed reality into the mainstream with its Quest suite of products, and we’re excited about the opportunity to demonstrate our expertise in this game.”
PlaySide will receive game development payments at agreed upon milestones along with a share of net game revenue in perpetuity.
Meta’s revenue has been declining for several quarters now — it wiped about $90 billion off its market cap in the September quarter — so it will be interesting to see if revenue from this game has an impact.
Work on the title is expected to begin in the current financial year.

This quantum player used – for the first time ever – some of the most powerful supercomputers in the world to obtain the most realistic and efficient simulations of 12CQ qubit material.
The complex atomic structure of the 12CQ qubit material requires enormous supercomputer power for predictive modeling and realistic simulations of the qubit material properties.
And the company says the results can be used to support the design and development of the complex quantum electronic devices needed for the future operation of the 12CQ chip.
