    My son once ask me how computer developer can generate income making online games, I don't have a faint idea how they do it. Is it through advertisement? Just a newbie here, just asking.

    i myself have a flash arcade site but i too don't know it. :D
    but they may earn thru ads or license deals probably. mochimedia is where i get some games for my flash site and they do offer developers API to earn and at the same time mochimedia distributes thier games.

    Normally they earn from ads, it can be banner selling, ppc sdvertising or/and affiliate program. Some are earning those the game selling or credit selling

    The main ways that gaming companies generate profit from their games are as follows:
    • Through selling the games
    • By giving free access to the game but charging for premium membership
    • By selling items associated with the game, e.g. virtual property, weapons and tools within the games
    • By selling advertising space on gaming websites.
    Individual developers can earn money by working for a gaming company, working on a freelance basis or by setting up their own gaming business.

    well their biggest source of earning here as all the users have explain is by adding the ads on their websites so this gives them a respectable profit through the websites and there are also some other source of making money like by taking the regestration fee or anything else

    Hi,

    I would also like to tell as other say that ads are the source of income for them. They create ads and promote on websites for online games. I think now you got the point.
