The video games industry is undergoing a monumental shift towards digital. The average age of a gamer today is 37 and 42% are women (The ESA) and the ubiquity of connected devices, global uptake of smartphones and widespread access to the internet all mean that you have access to literally millions of more players today than a few years ago.

But business models have not settled. All eyes are on free-to-play with massive successes such as CSR Racing and World of Tanks. Rovio continue to grow their Angry Birds IP, combining premium and freemium mechanics. Everyone is chasing the whales.

One thing is for sure - $69.99 game sales are just one piece of the pie that is game monetisation. Players come in all shapes and sizes, from every corner of the world and if you want to ensure your future in the video games industry, you need to cater for this changing landscape.

"Game Monetization USA provided excellent opportunities for networking with a highly focused group of games industry executives"
