The global mobile gaming war is heating up, Daisuke Wakabayashi & Spencer E Ante at WallStreetJournal | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

The global mobile-game market is expected to increase nearly fivefold from $3.77 billion in 2010 to $17.6 billion in 2015, according to the research arm of Tokyo-based Ichiyoshi Securities.   The war is taking place on smartphones with names like Gree, DeNA, Zynga, Apple and Google.
