The video games industry is the fastest growing area of entertainment in the world and gives excellent entertainment value to millions of people all over the world.
The recent blockbuster Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 selling over 4.7 million copies in America and the UK on its first day alone, generating revenues of 187 million, surpassing anything in entertainment history, even beating the most successful movie of all time.
In the UK over 73% play video games on a regular basis and according to a recent article published by a British newspaper, the video games industry currently holds a value of around $50billion, and a recent report also estimated that consumer spending on video games will grow by 6.6 percent on an annual basis.
The survey shows amazing figures in the UK alone, for example over 250,000million hours of gaming per week, and these figures is made up of children aged 8 and over 74% of the male population and 71% of the female population, and plays an average of 5.1 hours per week.
The total sales of all videogames software amounted to 1.625 billion in 2009 in the UK alone and still rising, and the gross sales for all video game software and hardware for the UK in 2009 generated 3.3billion in sales, which is quite something.
There was a time when video games were frowned upon and only held a niche audience, but today these games have become a massively popular and affordable form of entertainment for people of all ages around the world.
