Mobile Gaming Market Could Double: Report

shrek3.jpgThe mobile video games market is growing faster than the markets for consoles and handheld video games, according to an eMarketer report. Only online gaming is expected to grow even faster.

“Global revenues from mobile gaming are pegged at $3.6 billion this year,” said David Rouse, analyst at Understanding & Solutions. “We predict this figure to rise to $6 billion by 2011.”
