Rovio has unlocked to potential, or at least giving future developers idea to monetize their application even more. The company has just introduced a new payment system called “Bad Piggy Bank” that is fully integrated into the app, where Angry Birds gamer can purchase additional content directly from their phone and the fee will be paid via SMS and charged to the next phone bill.
That means, apart from the profit of selling the game, Rovio now can generate more income through selling addons or extra items for their games. It’s just like MMORPG games with their online store for buying special items. Future mobile gaming will become one of the addicting money suckers too, if you don’t be careful.
