iOS: Single Biggest Gaming Format On The Planet
The remarkable truth of that figure, then, is that it’s entirely possible that measured by software revenues the iPhone/iPod is already the single biggest gaming format on the planet. And if it’s not already, it very shortly will be – the App Store is still growing while the others are moving downwards, and more and more publishers are devoting serious resources to making some very serious games for the iOS machines.
For a platform that’s only been around a couple of years, that’s already a pretty astonishing feat. Include the fact that it’s being done by selling the vast majority of games for less than $2 and it’s mind-blowing.
And the App Store is coming to the Mac now.
