The numbers are impressive, as new research from Newzoo and Distimo (an App Store analytics firm) shows that games now represent the largest single App-category on Apple App Stores, and account for half of the downloads of both free and paid Apps. Newzoo said that more than five million games were downloaded per day in the U.S. and six major European territories combined during March 2011. There are 63 million iOS gamers in these countries who downloaded an average of 2.5 games per month.
