The Free to Play model has largely found a home on the Samsung smartphones with their mild allergy to premium content.
In December, it was reported that the number of Android devices had finally outpaced the number of iOS devices in Australia.
Now, MCV UK notes that analysts predict a continued growth in Samsung devices in particular, which has been enjoying 35% year-on-year growth.
Additionally, Nintendo has finally issued a statement surrounding Free to Play, accepting it as a viable model and stating that it would not deny the value to be had there.
This news bodes well for the mobile-savvy Australian and New Zealand development communities, who may find increasingly welcoming platforms for more versatile business models.
