Forums - Sales Discussion - Sony Aniplex's revenue doubles from $900M to $1.8 billion after Fate/Grand Order releases worldwide

Mobile is where the money is. Many casuals won’t pay $59.99 for a game but will get a free game and pay $0.99 sixty times with nary a care in the world lol.



PC GAMING: BEST GAMES. WORST CONTROLS

A mouse & keyboard are made for sending email and typing internet badassery. Not for playing video games!!!

I don't think this will affect Sony's 1st party studios at all. If there is someone I trust is them. The only mistake they've done is pricing the PS3 $600 everything else they've been on point.

You are not wrong but in this particular case the money comes from die hard hardcore fans who spend literally thousands of dollars yearly in the game, there is even a guy who has already spent over 70k dollars on it.

Being a part of this community i can tell you that a lot of these "whales" (and F2P players like myself) are indeed console (and PC) players as well as forum goers, who just happen to be big fans of the Fate franchise as well as young adults with a lot of disposable income, and thas how they (the "whales") choose to spend it.

Which only serves to remind me the POTENTIAL a big budget exclusive Fate game would have, but it aint happening...



Still not available on Brazil tho

I would play it in english even if it was in portuguese (seriously) but I'm not making a fake US google play account for that.

Don't have a clue why it's not in our store tho, dozens of games even still in japanese/chinese are there but a game with a worldwide release is not...

You dont have to, just download an APP called QooApp (which is essentially another Playstore or Appstore for Japanese games) and then just open it and search for Fate Go (the english version) and there you go.



the last mobile game i played was simpsons tapped out, now its just a phone i text and talk on. and use the bluetooth for music and podcasts.

sony can use the revenue. good for them and shareholders.

This is the exact opposite of reality.  This game being published by Aniplex takes away zero resources from Playstation.  On the other hand, revenue generated by the game makes Sony a healthier company overall and might possibly mean more capital for Playstation.



I hope Wild Arms mobile does good too. It might revive the series and interest with it and a console version springs up in the future.



If someone asks why I'm using an alt account, CGI and Truckusaurus got me a temp approval until I get my iconic and notorious "kurasakiichimaru" account back. :p
