According to the Electronic Retailers Association (ERA), sales of computer games have overtaken sales of films in the UK – at least in terms of revenue. Games sales totalled £1.93 billion (~$3 billion) in 2011, compared to DVDs and other disks totalling £1.80 billion and the beleaguered music industry which took “just” £1.07 billion. And, unlike the music industry, the computer game industry continues to grow. It’s a long way from Pac-Man.
