Answer: Mobile Gaming

From a blog comment by "M. Mortazavi":

I'm also hearing from other sources that games on mobile phones and devices are even a greater focus of attention this year at E3. I'm not there but I imagine this analysis to be capturing a significant trend. I've not read much in your blogs looking into this -- What's happening with games on mobile devices?

Tom Ham replies:

Mobile gaming was in full-force at E3 this year. Publishers like EA, Vivendi and even Eidos were showing off gaming initiatives. I even saw an FPS game behind closed doors that was running on a prototype phone with a built-in 3D accelerator. All I could say was, "Holy @#$!"

In addition to games on phones, companies are getting into exclusive wallpapers, content and even video downloads showcasing gameplay. Konami, Namco and Tecmo are the leaders in this arena.
