Intel: Hear that knocking sound? It’s PC gaming

Intel: Do you know what the opportunities are in PC gaming? They’re probably better then you think – the PC gaming market is much bigger than consoles, both in installed base and in money made.

Sound hard to believe? Between how fast changes are happening in game models and distribution mechanisms and industry reports that only give a piece of the whole picture, it’s hard to get a really good feel for what’s happening in PC gaming. And yet, knowing things like how many gaming PCs are out there, how much revenue PC games generate, what the most popular gaming styles are and so forth is critical to deciding what kind of game to build, how to generate revenue from it, and how to distribute it.

We here in the Visual Adrenaline team have struggled with this too. We ask all the same questions as we try to find the best ways to work with games developers and to help them leverage the IA platform. We’ve accumulated a lot of data internally and done a lot of analysis on it. We think it’s helped us to form some answers to these questions, and we want to share the data we’ve put together with you and hear your thoughts on it. Our hope is that together we can create greater accuracy and more transparency around the trends that are happening in PC gaming. (Culture, Intel, PC)

Surprised there isn't some PC vs Console war going on because of this report. But not surprised by this report.
