The Creator of the Second Dimension - Chapter 408
Chapter 401 .Change the industry
Chuan Shu, Shen Ba Ba saw the news about Hatsune Gaming’s gaming platform “Steam” and felt unbelievable.
Originally, everyone speculated that this game platform may be a platform exclusively for Hatsune Games, for the “Monster Hunter” to be released in the future.
But what I did not expect is that this game platform turned out to be an agency platform.
The so-called agency platform is equivalent to a retailer on the Internet. In the past, game companies generally sold physical games through major game stores. Few of them set up their own game-themed stores. On the Internet, players want to download a lot of games. For more games, you must pay on the official website of each game company, get the activation code, and possibly register an account as needed, which is very troublesome.
The agency platform integrates these small and medium-sized game companies. Players can purchase, download, and play games on the platform as long as they register for an account on the platform. You can play all games with one account.
In fact, the essence of the host platform is also such an agent platform, but the hardware is added as a threshold.
The revenue of this kind of platform is done through a rake. In other words, the better the game is sold, the higher the platform revenue, and the platform makes money, it can win over more manufacturers, forming a virtuous circle.
But at the same time, this is also a troublesome place. If the platform’s revenue does not meet expectations at the beginning, it will become more and more bleak, and manufacturers are reluctant to move in and eventually go bankrupt.
In the past, some game media websites tried to establish a game alliance, but eventually failed due to the resistance of host manufacturers and several large game companies.
And the game platform “steam” of Hatsune Games has undoubtedly become a thorn in the eyes of game companies that currently occupy the mainstream voice right from the beginning of the announcement.
Not to mention anything else, there is already a tendency to argue among Shen Bae’s fan base.
[Bao’s severed hand]: Hatsune has great ambitions in the game, but I don’t know if it can be done. Now most of the medium-sized manufacturers choose the black box and SN4 exclusively. Generally, no one dares to get on this new platform.
[Emergency Money Machine]: Although Hatsune Games looks like a big battlefield, when you think about it, there are actually two console games, both of which are exclusively SN4. This new platform doesn’t even have a town hall. I don’t think it will work.
[The only designated Tengu]: Although there are only two games, both games are very popular. I have reason to believe that “Monster Hunter” will also be a big hit. When the time comes, players will come to this platform to play, and other games will naturally It sells well.
[Women singing and men dying]: Do you think Suoren Entertainment and **** technology will not interfere with the development of this platform? In addition, there are still several old companies on the PC, such as Tsunami Games, and they have built a game platform by themselves , Is also preparing to expand to other companies. Looking at it, it is all the enemies of Hatsune Games.
[Bao Bai Si]: To be honest, I feel that the works of those big companies will not be available on this “steam” platform for the time being. The first six months are probably small games.
Shen Baa watched the group chat for a while, and only switched windows when he heard someone looking for her on QQ.
This is the editor of Hatsune Video Network who is responsible for contacting their game anchors. What he brought is the pre-test qualification for Hatsune Games’ platform “Steam”.
Suo Ren Hu Yu, head of the Game Development Department, and the third development department, Li Zhen saw the news on the computer. What he felt was not surprise, but a feeling that he really felt so.
From the first sight of Xu Rui and the first moment he came into contact with his creative development ideas, he knew that this man would not just be willing to make games and make money, just as he did in the animation industry, Xu Rui wanted The thing is to change the entire industry.
Even though he was in Suoren Huyu, Li Zhen had to admit that when Suoren Huyu was the sole leader, the game industry was indeed silent for a long time. At that time, PC games were mostly independent games, and there were few stand-alone games. Scarce, only online games occupy the player’s screen.
As for console games, all game manufacturers must please the mutual entertainment and create under the constraints of the mutual entertainment.
Later hard-core technology launched a black box. In the eyes of Suo Ren Huyu, it was a competition to seize the market, but in the eyes of the players, it was indeed a good thing.
In order to cope with the golden membership system of the black box, the monthly free games for members of Suo Ren Huyu have changed from the small games of dozens of dollars at the beginning to the old games many years ago, and they have become the first-party masterpieces from time to time. .
The discounts on holidays and holidays made the players smile even more. At the same time, in order to grab players, the game development departments of the two companies have also worked hard to do their best to make the game the best.
For third-party manufacturers, the two formulas have also launched various discounts. It can be said that the admission of **** technology has indeed brought the entire dull game circle alive.
But just as the dragon slayer grows scales and becomes an evil dragon, after the **** technology has grown to a certain scale, a state similar to that of Suo Ren Mutual Entertainment has appeared, but it is not obvious that the two sides are still in fierce competition. .
As far as Li Zhen is concerned, the problem with game development is the most obvious.
When **** technology develops a new game, Suo Ren Huyu will immediately establish a project to develop a similar one, but also has to limit the development cycle. Many games that should have been carefully polished for two or three years are driven by competition. It’s on the shelves and even sold as a semi-finished product, which has a great impact on the reputation of the development team.
For example, the previous “Hymn” was obviously a work that was forcibly put on the shelves. As a result, everyone saw that the studio’s reputation was ruined and its reputation plummeted.
Xu Rui’s “steam” platform, if it fails, it will have no effect, but if it succeeds, then it will undoubtedly be a huge impact on the industry.
Manufacturers can choose not only the host platform, but also the PC platform. At the same time, small studios can also have more convenient release and promotion channels. Over time, the “steam” platform will aggregate a large number of small and medium-sized manufacturers, and the depth of content In terms of breadth, it quickly surpassed the hard-core technology that has accumulated years of accumulation and the hard-core technology that spends a lot of money on content.
And these small and medium-sized manufacturers may not really always be small and medium-sized manufacturers. Maybe a game that has become a hit will quickly become popular and become a famous player. At that time, the future of the game industry will be in the hands of Hatsune. Game hands.
In fact, the popularity of “Made in the Wild” was actually a preview, but at the time, no one could see the layout behind it.
With a sigh, Li Zhen closed the website and continued his work. His previous prediction was half correct. The action game he is currently developing is probably going to crash with Hatsune Games’ Monster Hunter.
