Video Games and Consoles - UK - September 2013

The Wii’s sales popularity has declined to a record low, with the poorly performing Wii U failing to provide a balancing revenue boost for Nintendo. Sony and Microsoft will be hoping that their next-generation consoles do better on release in December 2013, and strong pre-order numbers do seem to paint a rosier picture. All is not as well with the handheld market though; poor portable sales for both Sony and Nintendo were rectified only through drastic price cuts, which suggest the handheld market has been too badly damaged by casual smartphone gaming to ever recover to previous levels.

Executive summary

Since 2007, an increasing number of HNWIs have shown interest in alternative investments, such as art, classic cars, wines, jewelry, gems and watches, which in times of economic uncertainty can deliver higher returns than equities. US HNWIs had the largest share of total luxury investments, valued at US$118 billion in 2012. Chinese HNWIs with total luxury investment of US$43 billion in 2012 were the second-largest contributor in luxury investment and were the major driving force behind the growth of luxury investment.

A development in alternative investments has been the evolution of the art and finance industry to answer the need of HNWIs who have acquired significant collections over time, as well as those of an emerging collector who invest based on quality and long-term value from the outset. Following the economic slowdown, car enthusiasts and investors in the UK have generated greater interest in classic cars. Many HNWIs from emerging countries in Asia, Middle East and Latin America are buying into this lifestyle by amassing their own collections of classic cars.
