Missing perception in Windows Phone Development?

I quote this from Elbert Perez a successful Windows Phone Developer

2012 plans laid out.

Posted on March 12, 2012 by elbert

I just got back from GDC, which is my annual “know what direction I should take and keep up with the game industry” kind of week. The biggest lesson learned this year from GDC is to be promiscuous with platforms. Don’t just lock yourself into 1 platform and lose all the benefits of the other platforms. What this means is that I will be using multi-platform strategies moving forward. I will be starting with HTML5 and depending on how that goes I might stay with it or switch to the Unity Game Engine. This is not saying that I am dropping Windows Phone Development, I am just including more platforms into my target audience. There are a variety of reasons I am doing this:

1. Multi platform is a no brainer in increasing the number of users playing your games. This is the clear and most effective path at achieving growth without resorting to spending huge amounts of money on advertising

2. The gold rush of Windows Phone is now over. With more and more apps flooding into the market the competition is getting harder. Money is not as good as it was, and the quick development method is less effective. Being stuck monetizing just on ad revenue alone sucks. Windows Phone needs IAP and it seems like it will be forever before it shows up.

3. I have a library of successful games that are screaming to be ported over to other platforms. This makes the porting process easier for me because I already have all the assets and design done for me. So I can concentrate on building the infrastructure of my multi platform strategy. Once I have better understanding on  going multi platform, I can resume creating new games :)

Don’t worry folks, this is just part of growing up as a developer and keeping with the times. There is a hard road ahead, but it is those hard roads that are worth travelling :)

I got his point, but if the gold rush is over on Windows Phone it is way over on other platforms, I think as earlier adopters we got the advantage to start in a fresh environment, but not evolving in ideas/quality it’s going to hurt us in the long run, because in some point competition is going to be tougher and new ideas will come out.

As for the gold rush, I think there is going to be a gold rush on Windows 8, but in my opinion since it is the #1 flagship product of Microsoft, the gold rush will be shorter.

It is a continuous creative process with non-stop imagination for the ones that want to stay on top every day, I think everyone can do better everyday, and we won’t be in the process of jumping to other platforms (rather than smart expanding).

It seems odd that this developer is going to an over-saturated marketplaces (iPhone = +500,000; Android = +375,000) while complaining of lots of competition in Windows Phone (Windows Phone = +70,000).

I would like to hear your opinions and I think this is an interesting topic for Windows Phone developer because we need motivation to continue working and when we see other developers complaining somehow some developers lose a bit of that motivation.

Here is an article written in WMPowerUser about Elbert Perez,

Reason why Neuralnet is successful in Windows Phone 7

Before we did any Windows Phone 7 application design and development, we were a web solutions company, and honestly we found ourselves into a deep void with no sign of success in the future.

The CTIA – Wireless Association came into Orlando in 2011, and we had a long discussion about going or not, like I said before, we had very limited resources and the decision to go was a big one since the price was a bit high for us.

We knew that there was going to be a show and tell for a Windows Phone 7 App, and we thought this could be a good opportunity to get our name out. We made a mock-up of a music app. When my brother show it off, he met a guy named Joe Healy.

The reason why we are successful in Windows Phone 7 is because of Joe Healy, he is a pretty cool guy, but don’t mention that to him. If you get a chance to meet Joe Healy and you are legitimately interested in developing for the Windows Phone 7, he will help you out with a solid base to start making your wp7 apps.

We can’t give enough credit to Joe, and we greatly appreciate everything he has done for us! Thanks Joe!

P.S. I still think you about page is fea.

Sprint and Windows Phone 7 petition

Sprint and Windows Phone 7 Petition

Sprint has been known for the lack of support for Windows Phone 7, with only one device (the HTC Arrive which is a fantastic device) Sprint customers are starting to realize that Sprint may not be the carrier they want and are beginning to switch to other Windows Phone 7 supporter carriers.

Sprint Vice President of Product Realization David Owens expressed his lack of enthusiasm for WP7 and is clearly a sign of the lack of support for Windows Phone 7 in Sprint which leads us to say this publicly.

“We, Neuralnet, developer of these fine products such as  NFL Pro ’12, NBA Pro ’12, NHL Pro ’12, Love Text, Game Scout, Multiple Trivia Games, Theme Park Pro and over 40 applications is on Sprint, we will be switching off Sprint in August if Sprint doesn’t release any kind of information about new Windows Phone 7 devices coming soon.”

If you are on Sprint or if you want to have more Windows Phone 7 choices in the stores, then please go to SignOn WP7 on Sprint and sign the petition! let’s make an uproar and let our voices be heard!
