iPhone/iPod touch growing in US market (already bigger than PSP)...

Forums - Sales Discussion - iPhone/iPod touch growing in US market (already bigger than PSP)...

Didn't see this report posted yet, I wonder if this is (in part) why Nintendo's bringing on the 3DS stuff...

 



Around the Network

I just bought an iPhone two days ago, pretty neat so far.

I have Doodle Jump, FieldRunners, and Pocket Tanks... which are pretty awesome.

(Poor PSP software... )



so the PSP has about 3% of the gaming software market as measured above in the US?

i.e. 11% of 29%



I'm not really here!

Well, they omited one important part of gaming - mobile phones besides iPhone OS that worth about the same as iPhone in US.

//So iPhone OS accounts for ~$500M in US, seems reasonable. Wonder what're results  for the rest of the world.



Still, PSP sells very well in Japan, and it often beats 360 in weekly worldwide sales, so I'd say PSP is fine, unless people think 360 is about to die.

I'm pretty sure it's almost always last worldwide for software sales.   In Japan it's usually 3rd overall annually (behind DS and Wii).



Where's Android OS on that pie chart?



Yeah to bad for psp, though iphone has some great titles.

But since people have such a hard time believing that iPhone OS has any relevance to gaming, repetition may be in order.

Seriously. The standard response to any Iphone/Ipod Touch material here seems to be lol Apple or lol no buttons. The headway Apple has made in gaming is interesting and deserves more attention.
