iPhone appears to be one of the main drivers behind mobile gaming growth, according to the comScore report released on Friday.

iPhone owners accounted for 14 percent of mobile game downloaders in November, with 32.4 percent of all iPhone users reporting they downloaded a game in the month, compared with a market average of 3.8 percent.

That's nearly 10 times the average. No wonder so many companies are hopping onto the iPhone bandwagon.
