The good boys and girls over at TUAW put together a fun little comparison visual for everyone, and it’s pretty interesting. They have compared the number of games available in Apple’s App Store with over 4 generations of game consoles, portable gaming systems, and more. The result is what you see visualized above. Yes, the App Store has more games than you’d expect, especially when put in context with how many games have been released to this day on every system, combined. However, when you add in quality of games, and how easy it is for someone to create a day in the modern age of today, well, it’s a little less impressive. But not by much.
