Google Play store surpasses Nintendo and Sony in handheld gaming revenue
Google Play Store, the official marketplace for Android users has managed to get on the second place in the best selling platforms for games, right after iOS App Store. Suprised? Not quite. Traditional handheld gaming like PlayStation Vita and/or Nintendo 3DS are falling way behind due to expensive game costs.
For example, a PlayStation Vita game can costs around $60 while a mobile game is almost always around $10-15.
There are currently 1.25 billion smartphones and 180 million tables across the globe, while handheld systems are less than 200 million.
