Why is the gaming industry thriving? It is an often asked question and, rightfully so! The internet, as news media and game developers ascertain, is composed of 99.8% users who just wont pay for online services (ex, reading an article, playing a game or etc) … so why wont services charge users?
- People are used to the concept of free
The hardest thing about “change” is “change” itself (sounds familiar? -)… once you got used to “free” changing the attitude to “pay” is so hard and often, fails badly. So most online providers opt to giving away their service for free with hopes of making enough $$$ at some point.
- Microtransactions are quite a hustle.
So many startups have started, hoping to tackle this problem, and have failed. There are 10001 reasons why these solutions haven’t worked; the major one being bad user experience and failure to acquire enough users to make the economy work.
- Friction free checkout process:
I wont go explaining this in detail because each one of us have stumbled upon New York Times or any other news site to be told to “subscribe for a small amount of 4.99/month” to access the article we were hoping to read. Was it worth subscribing to the monthly service? 99.9% say NO.
So how is the game industry thriving while other are still struggling?
