Console Versions of Indie Games Considered a “Lower Risk”

It’s about profit and risk when it comes to making games and putting them out but according to Retro City Rampage developer Brian Provinciano, it’s a lot less risky to port indie games to consoles. “I’ve been very successful in console, and I haven’t touched mobile yet. I feel in many cases that console games can be a lower risk.” Mobile gaming is something entirely different but still, the difference between pc and console porting can be vast. (Brian Provinciano, PS Vita, PS3, Retro City Rampage, Wii, Xbox 360)

Mobile gamers mostly want something to distract them a few minutes at the bus stop or while they're not on Facebook.Console gamers have a better chance of buy-in your game.Not to mention your game is probably going to be lost in the endless sea of $.99 cent apps and clones
