Industry Outlook
Next-gen consoles, PCs and mobile gaming are pushing the limits
  • The video game and film industries are continuously growing despite recent economic downturns. Experts predict a healthy business with ever increasing profits. Animated feature films dominated the box office in 2016. Also, the sales of the latest edition of next-gen consoles, PS 4 and XBOX One, are still going strong since its launch. On the indie games front, successful Kickstarter campaigns have changed the playing field.
