Qualcomm, EA forge mobile game partnership

Gaming giant Electronic Arts (EA) yesterday said it will partner with Qualcomm to deliver more of its games to mobile devices using Qualcomm's BREW platform. EA said it plans to release 15 to 20 titles for the BREW system this year. While EA may be new to the mobile gaming market, it is the undisputed champion of the console market. The company has been slowly moving into the mobile space and is already gaining traction. EA said revenues from mobile versions of its titles grew from $14 million to $34 million in its fourth-quarter. According to researcher In-Stat, games are now the third-most popular mobile function after voice and SMS messaging.
