Speculation about the potential size of the gaming industry continues to grow. According to Indiagames’ founder Vishal Gondal, that number could be 100 times the estimated $30 million Indian gaming industry. The Indiantelevision article quotes Gondal as saying, “If we are able to convert the pirate users into paying consumers, that alone will make the gaming industry worth Rs 3 billion.” While refusing to mention revenue targets, Gondal revealed that Indiagames has a 50 percent to 60 percent market share of the mobile gaming market.
One more tit bit that our readers could be interested in in an otherwise non-newsy interview, is Indiagames’ deal with NBC Universal (NYSE: GE). Gondal said Indiagames is still working with NBC on a project to project basis and not signing a long term deal. Am sure if offered a long-term deal Gondal would find it tough to say no.
