PC Gaming Alliance Reports Huge 2007 PC Gaming Revenues
The PC Gaming Alliance, a trade group dedicated to promoting PC gaming, continues to declare that PC gaming is alive and well. The PCGA calculated that during 2007, PC gaming was responsible for $10.7 billion of revenue.
The organization claims that only 30% of that figure comes from retail sales, with online PC gaming accounting for $4.8 billion. Downloadable sales of titles accounted for $2 billion and in-game advertising accounted for $800 million. As the PCGA points out, though, growth has largely been driven by Asian markets, which are currently producing around half of all worldwide sales.
