This is forecast to reach US$450 million by 2012.

In Australia, 7.3 percent of survey respondents indicated that that they buy versions of their favorite console and/or PC game to play on a mobile phone, 

The mobile gaming market in Western Europe is expected to grow  to $862 million by 2011. The North American market is projected to grow from $845 million to approximately $1.2 billion in 2011. The gap between North American and Western European mobile-gaming revenues is expected to widen over the forecast period as more users in North America adopt mobile data services in general.
