As long as your device can’t transmit or receive wireless signals like texts or phone-calls, the FAA is soon to let you play with it during the takeoff and landing portions of any particular airplane flight. This means 3DS and Vita, phones and tablets (if ‘Airplane Mode’ is turned on), etc etc can all be used to calm your nerves or supplement the visceral experience of being forced into the air above earth at 400 miles an hour starting “soon”, according to the FAA.

Why the change of heart? It turns out that devices that aren’t transmitting or receiving things wirelessly can’t interfere with most planes’ computer systems.

– All of these games sold at least 5 million copies
– Brain Age, New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Dragon Quest IX and Mario Kart DS round out the top 10
– 8 Nintendo-published titles overall
– Nintendo has sold 99.8 million pieces of retail software in Japan since 2001
– Combined with the 33 million or so Pokemon games sold, that’s nearly 133 million Nintendo-produced game cards and discs floating around Japan

Famitsu concluded with the following:

“More users are downloading their software purchases, and the flow toward free-to-play can’t be ignored. Games are being played in an expanding number of ways, and there’s been a massive rise in the number of users who play games on their smartphones. We’re approaching an era where software sales aren’t necessarily a direct reflection of what gamers like.”

EA earned $695 in revenue across console, mobile, and PC software sales during the latest financial quarter. Unsurprisingly, just $9 million of the total came from Wii U and Wii U titles, or 1.3 percent.

If you were to disregard handheld and PC sales, Wii and Wii U’s total increases to 3 percent. Still, that’s nothing compared to the Xbox 360 (54 percent) and PlayStation 3 (42 percent).

Also worth mentioning, handheld sales encompass 14 percent of all EA mobile sales. Sony handhelds take up 8 percent while Nintendo portables account for 6 percent.
