    A model of the effects of casual gaming on the home video game console market by Larrabee, Tyler Kendrick

    The home video game industry has become one of the largest industries in the United States; until recently it has seen steady growth. With the introduction and rapid growth of smartphone and tablet gaming there has been a drop off in sales for the industry. This paper defines the industry as it was and creates theoretical framework that attempts to explain the ways that tablet and smartphone games could be affecting the home video game console industry. The model uses a finite horizon sequential game model to capture the effects of competition within the industry and heterogeneity of consumer console preferences as well as effects of smartphone/ tablet computer ownership on consumer preferences.
