The 20,000 Foot View:  Games revenue growth is about to slow, with in-game spending the sector set to retain most momentum. Simultaneously, other entertainment sectors will actively seek to monetise digital fandom. Future games revenue will need to tap opportunities beyond games-related spending alone, and the wider entertainment demands of consumers. Integrating cross-entertainment thinking into games product strategy and games design will be crucial to long-term competitive differentiation and revenue diversification for games companies.
