According to the NPD group the gaming industry brought in over 17 BILLION dollars last year. Thats a 43% increase over 2006 and over 7 billion dollars more than the movie industry.

And they say gaming isn't a viable medium. Take that Hollywood!!!

Wow, 47% higher? That's amazing. I wonder if that number's still going up.

Victory!

Guess all you can say is, we rock.

Australia alone doubled the amount of money in its Games Development Industry. Which is brilliant.

Yes 2007 was a great year for gaming and I'm not talking about the amount of money, I'm talking about the games that came out in 2007

Yeah, I just read that. And EA made 43.1 billion dollars that year too. I personally don't see the hate on EA, I think they've done great with publishing and everything. My source is the EA.com website.
