iPhone eating into PSP, DS sales
A new analysis of portable gaming sales shows what has been suspected for some months now: iPhone and iPod touch sales are stealing interest away from PSP and DS games.
Analyst group Flurry has a report out that shows a drop in game sales revenue for both PSP and DS. iPhone, however, saw a big jump in revenue.
In total, iPhone and iPod touch game revenue nabbed 14% from PSP and DS. The greatest share of that revenue comes from PSP, which lost a 9% share to iPhone. That directly contradicts Sony claims that Apple is not a direct threat to PSP.
A loss of 4% for the DS also puts Nintendo in a difficult position. Rumours indicate that a successor to the DS will be announced at E3 to combat the popularity of Apple's devices.
