U.S. retail software in 2012: What you need to know

Gamasutra: Previously, I showed how the software market has contracted in the UK, and unfortunately the U.S. has experienced a similar, but slightly less severe, contraction. Whereas the UK market lost over 26 percent in revenue in 2012 relative to 2011, the U.S. market lost 24 percent during the same period.

That puts the total retail software revenue figure only $200 million ahead of the retail software market in 2006, the year that the Wii and PlayStation 3 launched. Or, to give another reference point, the retail software market has contracted 40 percent between its peak of $11 billion in 2008. (Industry)
