Why We Need More Games!
The Original Micro-transaction
In the 70s and 80s, Games Were Played in Arcades
Machines Cost Thousands, but Made $400+ a Week
Peaked at 3.2 Billion Dollars a Year (In Quarters!)
In The Age of Arcades
Logic was built by circuits in silicon
The Crash of 1983
12+ Home Game Consoles on the Market
Plus the Rise of Home Computers
Inflation! Quarters were worth less
but games cost more to make
Went from 3.2 Billion in Revenue to 100 Million
Gaming Was Saved By Mario
The Rise of Home Consoles in the 80s to Now
Home Computers Go Mainstream With Games
PC & Consoles
Cost Less Than a Cabinet
Played interchangeable Games
Right in Your Own Home
PC vs. Consoles
PC and Console Gamers Don't Always Get Along
PCs Offer a Wider Variety of Play
Consoles Offer "Couch Co-Op"
The Rise of Mobile
A Console in Every Pocket!
If you're sensitive to PG-13 swear words, please Mute
Mobile Gaming Is Now
1.5 Billion Smartphones in the World
More Hours Per Player Than Consoles
Mostly Free-to-Play with 51% Non-Paying Players
PC and Consoles Should Both Be Afraid of the iPhone!
