From an actual, physical console to iOS games, you can find it on Kickstarter to back. It hasn’t always been that way though, says Kickstarter. Games jumped from the 8th position to the 1st one in just the past year. Here’s the full category breakdown for 2012: 1. Games — $50 million 2. Film — $42 million 3. (IT news)
