Enter the total number of game copies sold, the price per game ($), and the total development cost ($) into the calculator to determine the Game Profit.

## Game Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Game Profit.

GP = CS * PPG - DC

- Where GP is the Game Profit ($)
- CS is the total number of game copies sold
- PPG is the price per game ($)
- DC is the total development cost ($)

## How to Calculate Game Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Game Profit.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the total number of game copies sold. In this example, the total number of game copies sold is given as 10000 .
- Next, determine the price per game ($). For this problem, the price per game ($) is given as 50 .
- Next, determine the total development cost ($). In this case, the total development cost ($) is found to be 25000.
- Finally, calculate the Game Profit using the formula above:

GP = CS * PPG – DC

Inserting the values from above yields:

GP = 10,000 * 50 – 25,000 = 25,000.00 ($)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total number of game copies sold = 60000

price per game ($) = 59.99

total development cost ($) = 30000

Entering these values and solving gives:

GP = 60,000 * 59.99 – 30,000 = 3,569,400** **($)
