Android and iOS make more money than traditional game consoles

All around the world gamers that want to be able to play games on the go are leaving the portable consoles from Nintendo and Sony behind and using their smartphones for gaming. This is becoming very clear and the new rankings from Flurry show this very well. Sony and Nintendo are both seeing significantly less money made in portable game software sales.

Back in 2009, Sony and Nintendo had a joint 81% chunk of the revenue made in the mobile gaming market. As of the latest report from Flurry Analytics, the duo only has 42% of the money made putting the iOS and Android game sales higher. iOS and Android now hold 58% of the market.

The Sony PSP has a tiny 6% sliver of the mobile gaming market and the Nintendo DS has a larger 36% share of the mobile market. Revenue for the mobile gaming industry is expected to grow to $3.3 billion this year. The market share for iOS and Android has almost tripled since 2009.
