Gamers and Gaming - US - September 2014
The majority of US adults now play video games on at least one platform, and the majority of gamers play on at least two. The shift toward digital distribution, comparatively new monetization strategies, such as the free-to-play model, and supplemental premium content, however, have made long-term engagement a critical component of a game’s profitability.
PC Gaming - UK - July 2014
Of the 18 billion hours played on Steam games, more than half was taken by just six games. Some 37% of games have never been played at all, whilst 17% of all purchased games have been played for less than one hour. This hyper-fragmentation of attention, where consumers are interested in games for only as long as it takes to buy them, before moving on, is a problem for games trying to use in-app purchases and downloadable content to mitigate the loss in revenue caused by high volume discounted sales. An environment where consumers are flitting between games at speed, or in which games are purchased primarily because they’re inexpensive and not because the consumer has a striking interest in them, is unlikely to allow for the sale of further add-on content.
