Precisely why many Nigerian programmers remain dirt poor. Any realist would tell you that this will NOT sell well. Have you any idea how expensive console devkits are? Or the massive amount of time you'd have to spend coding, designing etc and then extensive bug testing to obtain certification for release on consoles. You'll definitely have your work cut out with Nintendo grin

Then target market comes into play. It seems like a good idea now but you'll find that less than 500 Nigerians will be willing to pay full price for your game. Rampant piracy will cripple you too. Then you'd be left with lacklustre sales and staff salary backlogs.

Realistic targets and plans should be your watchword!

Your last statement is the only thing useful in your post but then, my comment had nothing to do with targets or plans. Now to the others: you apparently did not get the train of the discussion otherwise you wouldn't be jumping to wrong conclusions:

1. I am NOT a programmer. Not Nigerian programmer. Not poor.

2. Point to any research or finding that leads to the conclusion that this idea will not sell well.

3. Expensive console devkit? Well, I don't know where you live or what you do but I have them right here already -- e.g. the latest dev-kit for everything MS.

4. Nothing wrong with spending time creating a product as you would agree that anything worth while would require time, yes? Even to build a house before, even a bungalow, it could take 6 months or more and that is just something that has been done over and over. So, time and effort to create a product like this should not be a reason to not do it.

5. Games will not be meant for just "Nigerians". How many games for XBOX, PS3 and similar consoles have you successfully pirated? Again, this would not be a reason not to proceed with an idea should anyone wish to actually pursue it.

Well, I'm currently working on mobile phone application. It's more like a social networking app that runs on mobile phone to connect Nigerian University Students across the country. The development of this app is entirely in J2ME technology.

See what happens when you give someone the hard-but-true feedback? they get all snooty.

CyberG:


1. I am NOT a programmer. Not Nigerian programmer. Not poor.


This thread is about what Nigerian programmers are working on. While i used the word 'you', i was speaking in general terms. I've seen tons of software whizzkids who spend their time coding up the Next Best Thing only for it to end up as a dismal commercial failure.
if the impression you got was that I insinuated you were poor, I apologize. That was not my intent.


CyberG:


2. Point to any research or finding that leads to the conclusion that this idea will not sell well.


Research? Findings? i'm going with my gut feeling here  as a somewhat avid gamer and a keen observer of my fellow Nigerians. Total installed base of PS3 and Xbox consoles in Nigeria is not as massive as many of you think. PS3 games are expensive and the average gamer will shy away from paying full price for an idea such as this. A windows release will probably see your game speedily pirated and distributed for free or sold at N200 at Otigba.


CyberG:


3. Expensive console devkit? Well, I don't know where you live or what you do but I have them right here already -- e.g. the latest dev-kit for everything MS.

I specifically mentioned 'Consoles'. You can download free SDKs and Engines like Unreal 3 and iD tech but you need a developer console kit to test your compiled games on them. At last count, the PS3 DevKit was selling at $10000. The new PSVita devkit rings in at around 2000 euros. That ain't cheap for many people.

I have no idea what 'everything MS' means. Microsoft's only console is the Xbox 360.



CyberG:

4. Nothing wrong with spending time creating a product as you would agree that anything worth while would require time, yes? Even to build a house before, even a bungalow, it could take 6 months or more and that is just something that has been done over and over. So, time and effort to create a product like this should not be a reason to not do it.


Poor analogy. building a bungalow is not anyone's day job. programming is. Time = money and if you spend 10 months putting your game together, where will the money come from to pay yourself? Your artist? Your animator?


CyberG:

Games will not be meant for just "Nigerians". How many games for XBOX, PS3 and similar consoles have you successfully pirated? Again, this would not be a reason not to proceed with an idea should anyone wish to actually pursue it.

there are currently at least 2 threads in the Nairaland Games section inviting people to come pay N1500 to copy ripped PS3 games to their hard drives. pirated Xbox 360 DVDs are on sale in Alaba for N1000 only. So in you own opinion, potentially massive sales losses to piracy should not be an issue of strong consideration to developers and software development?

Am highly motivated by this thread.

Its really hard to keep up with the present.

Am working on a Mobile Chat Application using J2ME.

If you are familiar with the new "Whatsapp" released by Nokia,

this application is same but has other extended features,

whatsapp requires unlimited data n Internet connectivity, this application will not, just

a network service.

Any idea wil be gratefuly wecomed
