∞ EA: Fastest growing platform is iPad


“We [EA] have a new hardware platform and we’re putting out software every 90 days. Our fastest growing platform is the iPad right now and that didn’t exist 18 months ago.”

The comment comes from Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello. He noted that in 2000, 80 percent of the game industry’s revenue came from consoles; in 2011, it’s 40 percent. That’s a major change, and Apple is center-stage in that transformation.
