Game sales top DVD, Blu-ray in 2008

Posted on Wednesday, January 28 2009 @ 03:52:37 CET by


Global video game sales were up 20 percent last year, to $32 billion, while Blu-ray and DVD sales were down 6 percent, to $29 billion. These figures come from marketing researcher Media Control GfK.
The worldwide video game market grew 20%, now at $32 billion, while Blu-ray and DVD sales were down 6%, bringing in $29 billion. In all, "retail sales of packaged home entertainment" were up 6% in 2008, to $61 billion, reports Video Business.

While GfK's figures did not include rental revenue, it is not known if they account for hardware sales. U.S. game sales were said to surpass DVD sales in 2007, so long as video game hardware was included and the sales of DVD playback hardware wasn't.
