Stardock 2011 Customer Report

Stardock's Annual 2011 Customer Report (Adobe Acrobat format) has the private company's latest public assessment of where they stand. They discuss game plans, their desktop apps, and the sale of Impulse, which the report's conclusion says will lead to visible results:

Conclusions 2011 was Stardockís most successful year since its incorporation in 1993. It used the capital gained from the sale of Impulse to bring in world-class talent and evaluate the accelerating trends in consumer software. Over the next 18 months, it hopes to begin announcing a wide range of new products, games, and technologies.

For our industry, itís a time of transition. The PC consumer market could potentially see a consolidation in which virtually all PC games are sold either through Steam, GameStop Impulse, Battle.net, or Origin while non-games end up on a Microsoft Marketplace type system.

While these changes are taking place, the mobile space is exploding. Developers who were once PC developers are migrating in ever greater number to either iOS or Android. And Apple, with AirPlay, is setting itself up to compete head-to-head with the next generation console offerings.

It is a good time to be a software developer. Itís an even better time to be a software consumer.
