The iPhone and the App Store as the main responsible

How has Apple managed to be together with the greats of the videogame industry? It is not a company dedicated exclusively to creating games like Tencent, nor a company with video game consoles such as Sony and Microsoft … But it has the iPhone. Apple dominates the world market of mobile videogames thanks to the large number of mobile phones and tablets deployed around the world. A huge market that has been cooked for years and which can offer a multitude of video games through the App Store. With that 30% commission that is carried by the distribution has managed to position itself among the five largest in the industry.

Newzoo explains that this must be added the great flood that mobile games are having with respect to console games . They may not have the same quality in graphics and may not have the same complexity, but what is a reality is that they are eating the video game market. And this is where Apple is and companies like Sony and Microsoft do not. What about Google and Android? Simply the users do not spend as much as in the App Store. The latest Sensor Tower report indicates that developers earn 64% more on the App Store than on Google Play.
