The Games Are Everywhere, But the Money's Still in ConsolesS

There's this constant argument lately among gamers, over who really plays, what counts as a game, and where all the business is, anyway.

The folks at Mashable have shared an infographic from Statista that sums up the answers, and they are not out of line with what you might expect. There are more people playing mobile and casual games, but there's far more money coming from the AAA blockbusters.

With trends going the way they are, it's not surprising that developers like Crytek and publishers like EA are looking closely at free-to-play games and moving towards mobile gaming.

But still: what the infographic most clearly shows us is that it takes all sorts. Mobile and casual are on the rise, but we don't need to worry about our big-budget console and PC titles going away any time soon.
