Duh! <ul><li>Consoles are DEAD </li></ul><ul><li>Boxed Retail games are DEAD </li></ul><ul><li>Brand marketed games are DEAD </li></ul><ul><li>Any game company that hesitates to accept this is DEAD </li></ul><ul><li>Game delivery has moved online, it HAS ALREADY HAPPENED! …all that’s left are a few ghosts in denial </li></ul>
  11. The Quantum Economics Monetization Mantra <ul><li>Deliver 100% of the play a consumer wants to consume in exchange for 100% of their value </li></ul><ul><li>It costs virtually nothing to satisfy a consumer’s demand for play </li></ul><ul><li>If you don’t satisfy 100% of their desire for play they will satisfy the rest somewhere else… </li></ul><ul><li>There is a life cycle to monetization that you are designing to capture; that lifecycle is not linear nor is it the same for every player </li></ul>
  12. Many ways to monetize <ul><li>Commerce </li></ul><ul><li>Advertising </li></ul><ul><li>Virality </li></ul><ul><li>Engagement </li></ul>4 ways to pay for an online game:
