Low price points and ease of accessibility could be factors in the discovery that iPhone owners buy more games than owners of any other gaming platform.
The findings of a survey conducted in February by E-Poll Research, indicate that iPhone and iPod Touch owners purchased an average of 4.57 games over the past 12 months, more than any other gaming system. The next closest platform, surprisingly enough, was the Sony PSP, with 4.12 games per owner per year, followed by the PlayStation 3 with 3.99. Palm PDA's came next with 3.70, with the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, and DS taking up the rear with 3.55, 3.44, and 3.39 respectively. Not exactly unexpected, considering that most iPhone titles cost under $10.
The survey was also used to determine which factors influenced gamers' buying decisions, with price coming out on top and online multiplayer taking up the rear.
