The Gaming Industry, She Is A Rich Mistress

Now that the picture below grabbed your attention, I can get down to the nerdy end of things. The gaming industry in 2010 brought in somewhere over 33 billion dollars, and that is with sales of around 3.2 billion games. Those are amazing numbers to see in such a terrible economy. It goes to show us gamers the industry is not going to slow down for anyone ever.

If you head past the break you can see the 33 Billion broken down by console, dlc, android, etc. World Software in 2010 Revenue (USD, Millions) Units (Millions)
