11. Re: 96% of Games Unprofitable? Nov 22, 2008, 01:19 C_A_P
 
You guys are overlooking alot of things. When he says "Games that make it to market" actually means , in addition to the huge blockbuster titles( that account for less than 4% ), you're talking about all the games for the wii, xb360 ( including all the arcade games ),ps3, all the handheld units ( psp,ds, cell phones, etc ). There are many , many games released that never turn a proft.

Also, "profit" doesn't necesarily mean that the company is not making money.It jsut means that after paying everyone and taking care of all their running and overhead expenses, there is little to nothing left over.


Companies like CDProjekt who manage to score a breakaway hit with something like the Witcher , is pretty rare.
