Mobile Gaming By The Numbers [Infographic]

Mobile gaming has come a long way from the Game Boy or the Game Gear, back when consoles could still be considered mobile without having to be able to fit in a pocket. Now, the new Nintendo 3DS has dropped its price point and the face of mobile gaming is changing into something completely new. If you ever wanted to get a feel for where this all is going, lucky for you, Geekaphone has taken the time to infographic-ify this crazy evolution for your reading pleasure.

Did you have any idea that the current mobile entertainment industry can be valued at approximately $33 billion? Or that in-game purchases are on a path to overtake paid downloads in only 2 years? Probably not, but if that sounds crazy to you, and you think I might just be making this up off the top of my head, check out the full infographic below.
