The almost doubled growth of iPhones‘ sales share based on Gartner finding for the smartphone category seemingly equates to the positive share the device has filled on the US portable game market. Accordingly, iPhone takes strong 19 percent of the share while both Sony PSP and Nintendo DS drop shares with 9 percent and 5 percent revenue, respectively.
Overall Apple has eaten up 5 percent of the gaming market with 24 percent portables share (4 percent growth). Home console market has dropped to 71 percent from 79 percent.
The exciting part, base from the existence of one year and nine months, taking those share parts amplified with much cheaper 30,000 titles released since its July 2008 launch. The revenue, sales figure could be quite stunning. The Apple’s devices platform is still in its young year on the gaming business but looking how sharp the future ahead, no doubt it massively lures gaming developers.
Don’t look too far, the possibilities might be as well amplified with a larger hardware and obviously it is quite comfortable to play with it, no more, no less the iPad. This should really freak Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft to tweak their strategy up to date.
