The current scenario! - IIPM News

And someone who looks at a glass as half empty would say Brijmohan Munjal & group of Hero Honda did pretty badly: They managed to add a meagre Rs.32 billion to their personal fortune!

These reforms will eventually come. Globalization has meant closer international integration, and that in turn has meant a greater need for collective action.

Mobile Technology

Overall, does this flurry of activities spell the end of dominance of traditional console games of Sony, Sega, Microsoft, Nintendo and others? Compellingly so! The revenues from the console sector in the total gaming market are projected to reduce to 45% by 2010 from the current 60%.....

“One factor dampening console share is the spectacular success of the mobile sector... Looking beyond, convergence is the big issue,” said Adam Thomas, media research manager, Informa. The logic is simple. Wireless carriers want user spends to increase beyond calls, text messaging, ring tones, music downloads et al. Game publishers and mobile phone manufacturers too need newer selling propositions…..
