    Look at their long list of recent flops and how they just keep doubling down on them.

      >the potential in videogames
      Delusional.

      Video games nowadays are the most risky ventures available, they're very expensive, usually take 6+ years to make, the profit margin is pretty tight and they're a smaller market compared to movies or tv, there's basically no proven recipe for a good game and as you can see, most AAA games nowadays flop, studios are closing and publishers are going bankrupt, etc.

      Just look at Snoy for example, which is probably making less than $80mil of profit on each of their games on average, while Disney can shit out another bunch of Star Wars movies or some other capeshit product like Guardians of Galaxy vol. 828910 in 2 years and make $400mil on each of them. Video games are really not that great of an investment. Large companies like Amazon or Tencent are trying to invest in MMOs or other online games because that's the genre that can generate a constant big stream of income, but those are also risky as frick.

      Also reminder, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Star Wars are the property of Disney and they are most likely taking a large markup from EA, Ubisoft or Sony using one of their franchises.

        Mobile games make infinitely more money than AAA garbage and don't require 10 years to make.
        Of course videogames seem unsustainable if you only look at the AAA market, that's not where the money is at.

          Yeah, and that's why a lot of large investors are trying to get into the mobile market and sell gacha/lootbox games.

          Literally every large company tried to take a shot at it and has their own phone game with microtransactions.

        Videogames makes more money than the music and movie industry combined. "AAA movies" are risky as well and Disney produce flop after flop after flop. They waste 200-500 millions making those.

          Yes, but most of the profit lays in chinese mobile p2w online gacha games with microtransactions, MMOs and other lootbox games, and not in the market that Ganker is interested in.

          >b-b-b-but... they've lost like $50mil on Wish

          Dude, you just don't know how their market looks like. They haven't had an actual huge flop in years. They're making shitty selling movies here and there, like the Indiana Jones movie, but they aren't really losing that much on it. There definitely isn't as much risk involved as in making a vidya game as they can shit out like 25 of those movies in a year and some movie is going to turn out more or less a big success, and others are just going to even out.

          You're the one who doesn't know how big Hollywood works.

              Shareholder. I don't think Disney is on its the death bed, despite what some may say. The parks division is still doing well enough despite how poor the films and shows are doing. I'm just going to ride out the storm until Nelson Peltz getting another round in the ring. I do think this company can be saved.

        Videogames are risky due to logistics issues and unrealistic expectations.
        The movie industry is having just as much of an issue with the VFX industry, with studios in that field also closing even after delivering massive successes.

    Are you serious. Disney is not worth not even a trillion for starters. At their recent peak they were worth two hundred billion, but thanks to making shit and destroying male franchises they have gone down to being worth a hundred and seventy something billion. And they will be worth less next year when Florida opens the Nintendo theme park.

    And why would anyone want to buy video games about Disney's properties? I got to tell you, Disney's characters are mostly sugary saccharine inoffensive and LAME. Why would I play Aladdin's video games compared to the best Prince of Persia games for example? Why would I play Disney's Hercules when there are good Greek Mythology games most famous are the good God of War games. I find it hilarious people say "Well why doesn't Disney make a Zootopia Grand Theft Auto"? Because Grand Theft Auto will not be surpassed by a shitty infantile knock off that can't even depict firearms. I watched Zootopia in the teaser trailer the only "gun" the characters used was a tranquilizer gun. But in the actual movie the cops used NO WEAPONS. How do you make a Grand Theft Auto game out of that? Dumbass.

    To summarize Disney is inherently shit at video games because their characters are lame and don't lend themselves to gaming anything by and large. Kingdom Hearts was a hell of a fluke and keep in mind the only reason Kingdom Hearts "works" and has lasted for as long as it has is because Square Enix greatly expanded the original material way beyond ever needing Disney. In fact Kingdom Hearts succeeds despite Disney. Though it seems KH is fizzling out. And Disney gets no credit for creating Kingdom Hearts that's SE.

    Disney doesn't have a gaming division because as they found out during the SNES and Genesis era video game development is both difficult and expensive. And as the hardware keeps improving making games continues to be way too expensive. If you think that say Epic Mickey for example is a success because it managed to sell one million units on the large customer base of the Wii do think again. For crying out loud Croc sold better than Epic Mickey.

    Even the CEO Iger openly said after Epic Mickey failed as a project that Disney failed in gaming. They preferred licensing their characters as it doesn't give them a risk. And for what it's worth expect the remaster of Epic Mickey to tell badly because people HATE Disney nowadays.

      It's also worth noting that back in the SNES era they had well established titans like Capcom and SEGA chomping at the bit to license them and do all the hard work.
      I hate Disney but it 100% makes sense why they don't do gaming inhouse. Why spend time reinventing all the tricks of the trade?

    Disney is not making flops, they're just not making as much money as they used to. Even Wish didn't flop, they didn't lose money on it, the sales just weren't as high as expected.

    The Little Mermaid movie has probably made more profit than the Sony gaming division makes in a quarter.

      They gutted/underfunded their games division over the years because the geriatric CEO and lizardmen were in denail for a long time about the viability/profitability of the industry.

      Now with the market becoming heavily saturated (there's just too many games to play, both old and new), they've been left in the dust.

      because
      >sex is one of the most base human desires/vices and you WILL not stop the general public from whacking off to shit

    They licensed their properties out to devs in the 80s and 90s, ended up with a lot of good games like Ductales, Aladdin, and Castle of Mystery.
    The issue is they saw the success of those games, decided it was time for them to get into game development directly because "we have way more money so we can do it better", and proceeded to crank out turd after turd from the late 90s onwards. The only decent Disney games from then on were the Kingdom Hearts games and Epic Mickey, and that one skateboarding game.

    You really don't wanna know what Disney has done with Marvel since acquiring them. They have managed to ruin practically every single game that they have put a Marvel character in, since acquiring the Marvel license around 2012.
    The shit is quite impressive, almost rivals Warner Bros mishandling of live-action DC Comics adaptations since 1983.
    Only thing Disney hasn't seemed to ruin is that Marvel Snap shit, for phones, which most companies never frick up when making phone games.
