Media convergence, I agree, but only to a point.

Gaming on mobile devices has a definite role, and there is money there, but it's a certain kind of game only. Certainly not shooters. Short time wasters, little puzzle games, angry birds and plants vs. zombies are excellent examples of games that thrive on small screens. Many need the real estate, though. Even more important is shooter interface and controls. This is why the iPad shows limitations with certain types of games despite having so much more room with which to work compared to phones.
