Survey Finds Video Game Usage on Phones Tops Consoles, Computers

Seattle-based PopCap has commissioned a study that doesn’t necessarily support the bulk of its business to date — making games for consoles and computers. The pre-IPO casual-game maker of Bejeweled said the survey, conducted by Information Solutions Group, found that among mobile phone gamers in the U.S. and UK, 44 percent say the phone is the primary gaming device of choice, leapfrogging video game consoles (21 percent) and personal computers (30 percent) since a similar survey was last conducted in 2009.
