Gamers Expanding to New Platforms, At Cost of Traditional and PC Games

Even the most casual observer of the games business has witnessed an explosion in gaming options. The iPhone, other smartphones, social networks, online and casual portals and more have all greatly expanded the marketplace. While in a sense this is good news, it's also come at the expense of the traditional console and PC business, Newzoo has found in its latest report.

Newzoo’s U.S. National Gamers Survey 2010 shows that the 160 million Americans playing games are not necessarily shifting entirely to new online platforms, but what they are doing is actually increasing the total number of platforms they play on. That said, this expansion of options does still take away from the traditional console and PC games sectors. (Industry)
