Premium mobile and tablet-focused publisher Gameloft is continuing to see growth.

While its full fiscal results won't be released until sometime next month, the Paris-headquartered company revealed on Tuesday that sales during the 2012 calendar year totaled 208.3 million Euros (around $280.9 million), up 27 percent from 2011.

Gameloft focuses on high-quality, cross-promoted titles with instant at-a-glance appeal. The majority of its releases are tied to existing licensed properties, while its original IP games take design inspiration from popular console and PC games. Its latest announced game Blitz Brigade, for example, was described by Pocket Gamer as an "'homage' to Team Fortress 2."

Laying off 250 people always has a beneficial consequence for the bottom line.

Now it's just a matter of time before the "indie" bubble burst right along with the AAA downsizing epidemic. The market simply cannot support BOTH formats. Not in it's current ratio.

The question is who will be left when it's all said and done? I'll give up gaming if there are no more AAA titles, but I must admit taking a dump and playing Angry Birds is a great pastime.
