This Just In: Britons Buy Many Games


So supposedly the UK market will become the second largest in the world behind the US in 2009, overtaking Japan. That's the maths from trade journal MCV. Assuming things follow last year's trends (which seem like a fairly big assumption right now) the UK will grasp a video games market value of £4.77bn, rather more than our Japanese brothers-in-games.

But that's not all the news that MCV have, they've also got a huge global analysis of the games market, right here. Needless to say, the Americans come out on top with £14.89 billion. That's enough boxed games to crush a small country like, say, France.
