GameZone writes, "Research from the 2012 Games Market Dynamics from The NPD Group, a global information company, has revealed that a total of $14.80 billion were spent on video game content in the United States for 2012."
$14.79 Billion of that was for premium DLC, which was already on the disc.
Since when do Capcom games make up 99.99% of the content in the industry?
Yeah throw EA in there to.
i never understood the hate on EA yet the love for capcom who are IMO th bigger offender of misusing the DLC aspect and on disk locked dlc ON Topic: such a big industry yet people are the world don't take gaming industry serious. almost 15 billion in USA alone, think about the total yearly sale world wide. Governments wants to shut down gaming yet 99.8% of us who play games actually don't plan on killing actual humans, yet we are looked as bad because we play a shooter or a zombie game
Capcom don't have the nerve to cut content then release it day one. Prime example being From Ashes dlc in Mass Effect.
I contributed to that total of $14.80 billion and I'm proud of it.
^ Same here. The best hobby a man can have. Haha
Don't buy guns , buy games .
Better... don't buy guns, buy consoles don't buy bullets, buy games
According to the past 40 news reports on this site you can't buy games without becoming a delusional sociopath with intent to commit mass murder though? Or have they missed the point a little
This is the reason they will NEVER ban violence video games in the US......
