projected $20 Billion in 2012! That's it!! (sarcasm)

Wow if it wasn't for piracy it would be $21 billion. Maybe!

The global gaming community is gonna keep getting bigger every year for like a long time. Like less than one third of The Chinese population has a home PC but they are buying them like crazy, then you have the Middle East with more and more people buying computers, after that it's South American countries like Brazil, Chile, Argentina with more and more PC's in homes as well as India and it's surging home PC use in it's major cities.

Their is nothing but growth with PC sales and online gaming.
