Mobile Gaming is Worth $540 Million in 2009

Industry, Mobile

How many mobile games did you buy last year? A few? A dozen? 540,000,000? Well, plenty of people bought plenty of games, it would appear: Media analysts at SNL Kagan have issued a study charting the success of mobile gaming in 2009, and the total gross income is just shy of $540 million in the United States. That’s a rise of over 9% from the 2008 total. Furthermore, almost half of that revenue came just from the top four mobile game publishers in the country.

Specifically, the study cites EA Mobile, Gameloft, Glu Mobile, and Namco Bandai as the big earners for 2009. EA Mobile, whose estimated 2009 gross revenue clocks in at $115.9 million, signifies just how much the “overall margin for the industry is on the rise.”
