Rovio's Peter Vesterbacka, whose mobile title Angry Birds recently crossed 100 million downloads, spoke over the weekend at SXSW outlining his views on how the mobile platform has reinvigorated the gaming sphere, providing far more opportunities for developers to innovate. Using  the far lower costs and greatly reduced development times to support his point, he suggested that this was largely down to mobile gaming companies being far more 'nimble' than their larger counterparts, and that as mobile games continue to grow, the console game is 'dying'.
