Agreed. These past two years have been great for me economically. I'll be spending a hell of a lot more on games in 2019.
Lol settle down there boi. Lets not start any flame wars in the comment section. 40% increase is incredible though. It seems like it's attributed to lots of huge titles being successful early this year.
The economy really has been booming, nice change of pace tbh. I don't really care who's in the white house, I just know things have been good.
When has America not been great? Or do you mean My Attorney Got Arrested.
I would say Vietnam was a low point and most people didn't support the war. America was still great
Obviously you trumpers havent read the article. Most of the growth comes from mobile phones which has been growing hand over first for the past decade. But yea let's pretend trump had an effect on this. Let's see if video game sales are as good when these next round of tariffs take effect on 10/1 gonna hit consoles and PC gaming particularly hard. I wouldnt put it out of the question to see a $500 + launch ps5 strictly because of these tariffs.
The article says the biggest growth was seen in mobile gaming. With the latest round of smartphones - and their gaming capabilities, I expect this trend to continue. This fall should be huge for PC and consoles as well.
