The ultimate mobile gaming cage match is about to begin: FarmVille for iOS versus Harvest Moon 3D: A Tale of Two Towns for 3DS. According to G4TV, the farming simulator (that undoubtedly inspired FarmVille somehow) from Natsume is set to release this summer. This isn't exactly surprising news considering Harvest Moon has been on every Nintendo handheld since the Game Boy. However, what many call the original FarmVille could give, well, the real deal a run for its money thanks to the enhanced social features in Nintendo's goofiest system yet.
EA's social game developer Playfish gets a lot of traffic love for its FIFA and Madden branded Superstars sports titles developed jointly with EA Sports. Both games rank in the top 10 across all Electronic Arts titles, accounting for roughly 14% of EA's total monthly and daily active user traffic according to our app tracking service, AppData. Madden is the smaller game with only 1.4 million MAU and just over 170,000 DAU to date, while FIFA is still going strong at 3.5 million MAU and roughly 560,000 DAU.

Prober joins us for an interview on the title's vital link to the real world MLB and how that grow the game's audience hopefully past Madden's.
