Achieving Business Success in Online Games Explained at IGDS 2010

India Game Developer Summit 2010 – First, Independent Event on Game Programming, Business and Careers

Bangalore, February 11, 2010: Explosion in hours of game play on online gaming portals have not always necessarily paved the way to economic success for game developers. Portals and publishers alike are trying different models of monetizing their content primarily through on-site advertisement and/or in-game micro-transactions. Some of these models have been successful, though their success has sometimes being limited to specific geographies. In-game advertisement did generate a lot of interest, with major acquisitions by major players, but the success has been mixed so far. It does appear that execution is more important that the model, and to be successful, a blended approach will work better.
