Most of the companies making games for mobile phones have got it wrong, says Trip Hawkins, founder of games behemoth Electronic Arts.

"A lot of people have the wrong reference point about what has happened before," he said.

"Some see a mobile as a tiny TV, others want to put a PC in there and, to the game industry, it's a gimpy Gameboy," he said. "Mobile gamers are less interested in better and better graphics and more in the social side of the experience."

"They are willing to adopt these forms of media because they can control how they use it.

"People are giving up fidelity in exchange for personalisation, for a feeling of ownership."
