Clearly price erosion is alive and well on the platform...and it's becoming more acute amongst top performing Apps. As I was running through the numbers I was struck by the fact that there currently isn't one established mobile games publisher with a title in the Top 10! Of this group PopCap has the highest ranked title with "Bejeweled 2" at #14. This motivated me to create a new spreadsheet highlighting how these guys are stacking up in the Top 100 today...
EA Mobile is clearly the most on top of its game (punny) right now vis-a-vis the major publishers on the App Store...with Gameloft & D'Choc in hot pursuit. Glu Mobile = MIA.
