Study: Bulk of iPhone Game Earnings Come From "Free" Titles

Nearly two-thirds of all revenue generated from the top 100 games in the Apple App store in June came from people spending cash inside "free" games, according to a recent study.

Flurry also says that all of that money is generated by only 0.5 to 6 percent of gamers. Games like Smurfs' Village and Tiny Tower allow players to use real world money to speed up the game's built in delays.
