About $3.1 billion revenue will be earned from the users in the name of games from the tablet users by 2014

According to Juniper Research, an Analyst firm, worldwide revenues from tablet games may reach the figure of about $3.1billion, in 2014. This was earlier reported to be about $491 million in 2011. They also believe that the larger screen size of recent tablets along with their high graphics capability of these devices have been successful to attract more and more users towards them.

The Firm also believes that the hardcore gamers will also notice the improved experience offered on the more recent tablets. This might lead to having more console gamers as they are having console-style buttons which generally obstruct the screen for most of the games on Smartphones.

The report they released also points to a fact that as there is a high possibility that the tablet owners are generally those who have a higher disposable income than the general Smartphone users, so these people are more prone to spend money on games and even in game items than other demographics.

Lastly they have also suggested that by 2016, tablet games will account for nearly a third of overall mobile games revenue, while revenue from mobile games on feature phones will be halved by the next five years.

Charlotte Miller, author of the report, has also explained that the tablets are perfect devices for gaming in a mobile device. It has proved to have given higher user satisfaction with games.
