Video Game Software Publishing in the US

Despite a drop in disposable income and other adverse changes in the economy, video game software publishers experienced strong sales over the five years to 2011. By increasing their investment in marketing and building hype about new releases, similar to how the film industry operates, demand has risen. Over the next five years, revenue will likely continue rising, with publishers adapting their games to new technologies and consoles.
