The fall of Angry Birds

Trey Smith on how “Free To Play Games” are changing the gaming industry:

Right now, 18 of the top 25 grossing of all apps are Free To Play Games (72%).  Also, it should be noted that 22 of the 25 top grossing apps are in the games category (88%), confirming the fact you need to be into games if you want to have the biggest potential payout.  The reason for this is people have a stronger emotional attachment to games than any other type of app, therefore they are more likely to spend money.

I don’t want to game in a world where the only way to support developers is by buying virtual coins.

Thanks to twitter follower @dataTK for the heads up.
