Legendary video game designer who created super Mario and donkey Kong was the advice for today’s industry stop taking advantage of users.

Shigeru Miyamoto, 65, said Nintendo is exploring different ways of charging people for the game, avoiding free games model, which was the Moneymaker of €120 billion gambling industry.

Instead, he urged his colleagues to deliver titles at a fixed price without reloading the players that will create a more sustainable business in the long term.

“We are fortunate to have such a giant market, so our thinking is if we can deliver the games at a reasonable price to as many people as possible, we will see more profit,” said Miyamoto, the software developers conference (CEDEC) yesterday in Yokohama, Japan.

Criticism Miyamoto comes as a free game model, including the boxes with the extraction and microtransactions drives record profits. Instead of charging until the beginning of the one-time publishers all games away or selling them at reduced prices, and then pushing players to buy in-game goods, such as virtual outfits or encouraging them to put money to win rare items. The revenue model is particularly prevalent among mobile and personal computer games.

Supporters of the free-to-play model, saying that it increases the longevity of individual names and creates a more predictable business, which attracts investors and increases employment.

But opponents say it stunts creativity in the game and gambling-like behavior, which has resulted in Belgium and the Netherlands prohibiting the boxes with the loot this year. “I can’t say that our fixed cost model was really successful,” typically Frank Miyamoto said. “But we will continue to push forward until he managed to take root. Thus, everyone will be able to develop games in a comfortable environment. Focusing on the outcome of the game for a wide range of users, we can continue to enhance our mobile game business.”

These words came almost two years after Nintendo introduced its first game ‘super Mario’. She fixed fee charged, which was criticized as too expensive, and switched to the free game for the next two titles. ‘Animal crossing: pocket camp has received criticism for being too focused on profit.
