Zynga's dieing that's why.

And Activision milk the customer... That's why Investors love them so much!

At least activision never did online passes or stuff like that, they still milk customers less than EA.

Doesn't mean much for games as a whole, really.

Zynga and Blizzard are far from being the "be all end all" of videogames.

Also, I believe there might be a point in a casual gamer's life when he/she really did all there was to do in farmville...

Mobile gaming, while no doubt it's a healthy industry with many developers profiting and making millions from it, it still can be very risky sometimes.

It is VERY saturated with everyone and their grandma can publish a game very easily in the appstore/Google play. It is not the magical solution for gaming companies to abandon consoles/PC for it.

Not much in my opinion. I could see this being a thing if they ran the entirety of the gaming economy, but these companies are no goldman-sacs.
