  • Game video streaming: Your game is being watched more than it is being played

    The games market has always been about people playing video games. Recently, the “”people playing games”” experience has extended into “”people watching others playing games””.

    In just eight years, the video streaming of games has reached 30% of the total games consumption, and is foreseen to overtake classic playing of games in the next five years. Yet so far nobody has measured what soon will be the dominant consumption of games.

    Forced by this trend, game developers need to better understand the consumption of their games and the competition, as well as to adapt their games making them fun to be watched and streamed.

    PlayStats was launched at PGC San Francisco. PlayStats has already indexed nine million game play videos, mapping the “watch”” consumption of PC, mobile, console and browser games.
