  • 13. Five key trends driving change and growth 1. More screens Only five years ago, gamers played mainly on two screens: The TV and the PC. That number has since doubled giving room for more time and ultimately money spent on gaming. Gamers will still spread their budget across all screens. 2. Games are free Consumers have gotten used to the idea of trying a game before they decide to spend money. The days of low quality free games have passed as in-game spending business models have proven successful. Next stop: The TV screen... 3. Games are services As monetization now takes place within the game at a moment the consumer chooses, publishers and developers are even more incentivized to keep their gamer engaged as long as possible. Beta periods are crucial involving the gamers in the final settings of the game. 4. Flexible business models New Business models require continuous balancing between value for the consumer and profit for the publisher. Monetization of the game should keep free gamers happy and provide room for spending by the “whales”. The launch of a game is just the start... 5. Global marketplace The games market is now, a global playground. Online connectivity allows companies to localize and launch games anywhere on the planet. To secure growth, emerging markets should be a part of any game company’s strategy.
  • 14. screens access bizz models free organisation service profit value Consumers want continuous access games that are, in principle, free. Ideally, their game continuously improves and expands, as a service. If the game gives them value, they have no problem to spend money. Game companies increasingly need to make their games accessible via all screens as well as adapt their business models. The continuous balancing act between value for consumers and profit requires organisational change. Hard, but it is the only way to maintain growth in this competitive and truly global marketplace.
