This report does now not speak about the precise gamers out there serving the latent call for, nor specific main points at the product degree. The take a look at additionally does now not imagine brief-term cyclicalities that would possibly have an effect on discovered sales. The take a look at, due to this fact, is strategic in nature, taking an combination and long-run view, without reference to the gamers or products involved.
