Alibaba Makes Heavy Investment in Ouya

Posted by wicked January - 30 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

 

OUYA-Console-set-hOuya, the game-console maker made famous by its kickstarter campaign, has recently received $10 million from online shopping titan Alibaba. There have been discussions about incorporating Ouya’s software and 1,000 game library into Alibaba’s set-top box.

The primary location where Ouya can flourish is in China, which is poised to be the next battleground for video game competition now that the 15 year-long ban on videogame consoles has been lifted. Although Ouya seemed to be off to a great start in 2012 with an explosion of funding, the results are less than expected, mostly due to the powerful hold on the market that Sony and Microsoft have and the recent emergence of the Nexus Player and Fire TV, which both allow for similar cheap gaming. However, a struggling company and a burgeoning market can be perfect for each other if there is a way for them to connect. Enter Alibaba. If there is any place that Alibaba knows, it’s China. Alibaba can be extremely helpful to Ouya as it tries to move into China’s market.

Ouya is no stranger to deals with other companies, and has also been working out some mutually beneficial agreements with Xiaomi as well.

Mobile games profit increasing on Android, starting to near iOS

Posted by wicked January - 27 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

For years, developers flocked to iOS with apps and games because of profitability. Device owners within the Apple ecosystem spent more money than anywhere else and that made advertisers target iOS too. All of that is changing now, though, as developers are seeing Android’s profitability become comparable to iOS in some areas.

android_ios_2014_arpu_dau-up

The average revenue per user (ARPU) for Android games increased throughout 2014. When the year started, games available on Android had an ARPU that was 20% of iOS’. The year closed with that figure being at 65%. iOS kept its lead over Android; however, the glap is closing. This information comes from game marketing company DAU-UP. The firm also found that advertising costs are much lower (between 20-30%) on Android. Because of that, some Android games’ profitability could exceed iOS. One thing to remember here, too, is that this is about games and not Android apps as a whole.
