Based off their own analysis and numbers from NPD (via Gamasutra), Flurry have estimated that the iPhone and iPod Touch controls 5% of the $9.9 billion US video game software sales for 2009. Even more staggeringly, after comparing sales for portable game devices only the iPhone made up 19% of…

FFXIII Image Gallery - Rockefeller Edition?

So just how does a set of images (that will no doubt find their way to fan-created sites and forums anyway) end up costing so much? The images are in fact high-definition and can be zoomed in and out of to explore the deta…
