EA clear leader in mobile

Although Kim Peterson is reporting from E3 beginning today, I thought I’d share this survey regarding games for the mobile market.

Seattle’s M:Metrics said today that EA Mobile is the clear leader — 28.8 percent of mobile games being downloaded are coming from EA’s mobile game house.

Following EA Mobile, is Glu Mobile with 9.9 percent market share, Gameloft at 9.1 percent and Hands On Mobile at 7.2 percent. Hands On Mobile was formerly called Mforma and was based in Bellevue until it relocated to San Francisco. Chairman Dan Kranzler is still in Bellevue.

Seamus McAteer, chief product architect and senior analyst, M:Metric, said: “For the first time, we can offer a clear perspective on the mobile games market. This data finally puts an end to the vast amount of speculation about how the mobile games market stacks up.”
