At the end of day, video games are not only about becoming a critical hit in the market but to be financially successful as well. For a game to make money, it needs to conform to manufacturer’s guidelines. One of the primary requirements of manufacturer’s guidelines is the performance and stability of the game on the end user’s hardware.
