btw - did you notice that they make no mention of Snackable's claimed $85mil in revenue?

SNL Kagan teased a study that they released today entitled “Economics of Mobile Games," in which they claim the US mobile games market accounted for $540mil in publisher revenue in 2009. The full report (which I'm sure I can't afford) apparently ranks the Top 21 game publishers by US revenue. It would be awesome to have this, but most of us will have to make do with the Top 4 included in their release. Above I've lined up the data they've shared with my last 4 quarters through Q3 2009 for that same Top 4... which includes my (perhaps inflated) $90mil estimate for Namco's mobile business. I've also compared SNLK's total US market size estimate to my latest WW publisher revenue estimate of $1.136bil (which assumes my Top 10 revenue estimate of $795mil equals 70% of total publisher revenue). Let me know what you guys think.
