This breaks 2008's previous growth record. Gaming is a $2 billion industry here now, apparently as large as the wine industry. I'm nothing but pleased.

 

I'd be interested in the figures for Europe, Canada, America, Japan, etc, because even though these places all went into actual recessions, I suspect they might still have experienced growth in the games sector.
