Big Game Makers Staying Off The iPhone

The Apple iPhone has quickly become one of the hottest mobile gaming platforms in the industry, but not all video game publishers are moving as fast as you might expect to embrace the device.

Take Two, at present, has no games on the iPhone. Activision, the industry's largest publisher, has just one-the top selling "Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D." The company, though, distances itself from the game. ("Crash" is published under the "Vivendi Games Mobile" label, and Activision does not mention the game (or, in fact, the mobile division) on its Website.)

Of the Top 25 paid applications (most of which are games) in Apple's App store, only two more are from established third-party publishers: EA's "Tetris" and Namco's "Galaga Remix."

The story is too old to be commented.
