Ironic.


Now if they had just patented that idea they could be great like apple right?

I honestly do not care in any way about what rovio has to say about anything. They are so incredible full of themselves because they made 1 popular game (now there too scared to make anything else) and now they think they know everything about the market.

Is the new strategy to praise piracy in the hopes that people buy your product?

He's equivocating to some degree. Piracy is good for his business model because their software is supported by an ad-based model were viewership is the most important commodity.

That's an excellent point. I think you're spot on with that.

I'm curious, if their revenue depended solely on sales, would he feel the same way?

It's free advertising, that's what he is trying to basically say.

If you have a good game on your mobile device, you're probably going to show it off to your friends in person and tell them about. Word of mouth gets around.

It even works on the larger platforms. If you are a big gamer you probably visit several video game forums, comment back and forth on YouTube, and maybe even make your own videos and images to the game. By doing all of these acts, you're pretty much advertising the game without knowing about it.

Certainly not. He'll be on the piracy-scapegoat bandwagon. Not saying piracy isn't an issue, but to what degree is extremely difficult to measure.

Makes me wonder though, how popular would free ad-supported games be and how much would this method curve piracy.

I don't want to be a forum natzi or anything like that, but isn't this more or less a repost of this?

Dang editors recycling old news...

I would prefer to pay for a good game with no ads though

Yeah I can never understand what people find soo good about angry birds, I played a bunch of flash games like that back in the day. Same crap when that game Gunbound came out, alot of my schoolmates were playing it while I yawned and thought of Worms.
