Chart of the Week: How Kingdoms of Camelot kicks Infinity Blade's butt
While Kabam's Arthurian free-to-play title sees revenues rise even after downloads have peaked, there's a more direct linear relationship between downloads and revenue for the Infinity Blade games.
Even though Epic's slide-to-slice duology contains in-app purchases, Newzoo's figures show that revenues trail off once downloads have peaked, although IAP moderate the fall compared to a pure paid for game.
It's an interesting, if not entirely like-for-like comparison, that serves to highlight the potential benefits of free-to-play pricing and a more service-oriented approach to mobile publishing.
