Electronic Arts, widely viewed as the largest developer of video games has opted to enter the Mobile Gaming Market. BusinessWeek on line reports that EA has opted to purchase mobile phone game developer jamdat. This purchase gives EA not only the expertise but also the market base to immediately move its games onto the mobile platform.
This latest move by EA may signal a further diversification of EA’s efforts to dominate the gaming market in every form. With a stream of releases due over the next several months, it will be interesting to see if EA decides to port some of it’s classics to the mobile platform, or if they decide to develop new titles.
