Videogame industry prospering despite financial downturn: study (AFP) by AFP: Yahoo! Tech

Sign of the times

In a sign that the industry is prospering despite global financial woes, the NPD Group, GfK Chart-Track Ltd. and Enterbrain Inc. report said that videogame sales grew by 15 percent in Britain during the period and eight percent in the United States.

Overall, sales of videogames in the three largest markets rose by just one percent during the three months ending September 30 as compared with the same period last year.

Analysts attributed the 21 percent decline in sales in Japan to a lack of popular titles during the third quarter and other factors.
