Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “The majority of software games developed caters to the hardware platforms developed by three major companies: Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. These companies develop platforms such as Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U for the game software. These are multifunctional gaming consoles which not only support various games, but also enable gamers to watch videos, listen to music, browse the internet, and download videos. The success of the game software business is directly proportional to the acceptance of platforms by customers. As the number of platforms being developed is increasing, the demand for game software is also increasing, and this is expected to lead to the growth of the market during the forecast period.”
According to the report, the growth of the Global Gaming Software market is supported by several drivers, one of the major drivers being the increasing innovation of audio-visual devices.
