Seems like a no-brainer, to be honest. Open publishing and most engines offer free the tools to publish their engine on PC, mobile reaches the most, current gen the next.

Not really at all startling results. I think the only thing on there that stands out is that more prefer to develop for the Vita than the 3DS. Though that's likely due to a much easier time at digital distribution.
