iPhone platform more popular among game developers than DS and PSP

We don’t know if you knew about it, but it turns out that games written for mobile devices currently represent 25 percent of the game market. A groundbreaking figure as it actually puts iPhone on a pedestal against DS and PSP as according to the latest (2009-2010) survey by Game Developer Research nearly 19 percent of all the games developed for mobile devices are meant for the iPhone and iPod touch.

    The question is what do Sony and Nintendo do about it?

    Fixing the PSP (again)

    What should Sony be learning from the iPhone? First up, speed of interface – iPhone always connects to the home hotspot while the PSP has to jump through connection hoops, even if you’re swapping between browser, store, RSS or other link. While I don’t like iPhone’s lack of folders, or even just an icon to keep games behind, its still faster than the PSPs media and games menus.

    Revamp the network connection to always on (with an option for Off for the panicky user)
    Tidy up the net options, have instant links to Facebook and so on
    Connectivity, the PSP has a network connection, make it do more – even the Wii does news and weather.

    DS game, 5000 yen; iPhone game, 100 yen. Is it a wonder more people buy them?

    I’ve given up on my Nintendo DS mostly. I can get games for my iPod touch from US$2.99 to US$4.99 that are of similar quality as the same-named titles on the DS for US$19.99. The US$9.99 games tend to be as good as the US$39.99 games on the DS.

    The only drawback with iPod touch/iPhone games is that you can delete them, but then, you can lose a DS game card.

    Development on iPhone OS isn’t particularly difficult compared to a game system, though you have to work more on performance.
