We have passed by a research that will make all mobile gamers feel proud. Usually you hear console gamers mock mobile gamers because they assume that mobile isn’t good enough to compete with console. However, the numbers show otherwise. According to Superdata, games like Clash of Clans & Game of War alone have made more profit than the top ten console games combined in 2015.
In a $61 Billion Market, the mobile platform is significantly surpassing other platforms that have been here for decades. In fact, the mobile platform has earned up to $25.8 billion, increasing by 10% from 2014. This success if attributed to the free-to-play model since it allows people who can and cannot afford spending to interact with such games. Although, we must say that PC games have earned the most in the market, making up to $32 billion (moderately surpassing mobile).
Still, considering that mobile is a young gaming platform, its performance is wonderful. And it does seem like it will surpass PC soon. PC games are being ported to mobile devices more than ever and players will start playing less on PC and more on mobile, just like many players avoid console and prefer mobile now. Stay strong mobile gamers and let us keep pushing our platform to succeed more so that more companies acknowledge mobile’s success and develop breathtaking titles for it.
