Apple and Google Capture U.S. Video Game Market Share in 2010

A new research by Flurry:

>>Let’s look at the numbers.

Flurry iOS Android USportableGameShare 2010

From 2009 to 2010, iOS and Android game sales have spiked significantly, resulting in nearly a doubling of their market share.

Wedbush Morgan Securities video game analyst, Michael Pachter, points out that the “onslaught of $1 games is going to continue” and that "[Nintendo and Sony] are going to have to share the market with Apple and Android.” Our numbers quantify just how much. Further, as iOS and Android continue to change the paradigm of casual gaming, the battle between Nintendo against platforms such as iOS and Android will intensify.

>>Kaufman Bros. is reiterating its Hold rating on shares of Equinix (NASDAQ: EQIX) and is raising its price target from $78.50 to $83, prior to the company's Q1 results.

Equinix has been refocusing its sales force, which may take a while to bear fruit and we believe will continue to impact margins. Our forecast remains on the low side of management's forecasts for 2011 and we believe shares have benefited more from the overall multiple expansion of the group rather than company-specific catalysts."
