iPad fastest growing games platform as consoles shrink to 40%

The iPad is the fastest growing games platform, developers EA have suggested, with consoles now accounting for just 40-percent of the games industry. "Consoles used to be 80-percent of the industry as recently as 2000" CEO John Riccitiello told IndustryGamers. "Consoles today are 40% of the game industry, so what do we really have?"
