The gaming industry has been one of the fastest growing industries for the last couple of years. Surprised? Even during times of economic slowdown, it appears to have been immune to the effects of the recession.
According to industry analyst, Colin Sebastian for RW Baird, video games generated US$60 billion in revenues in 2011 and are expected to reach US$80 billion by 2014. It’s not a matter of “If” it’ll keep growing, but rather of “How”. In that aspect, 2014 is going to be an interesting year if we consider the fact that it will be marked by the deployment of new home consoles from some of the biggest players out there.
