Video gaming statistics can be sourced predominately online. Although publications do exist about the demographics and industry statistics most gaming information companies do place their information online, disregarding newzoo with it’s price tag. It only seems appropriate that these resources place the information online (even if by printable .pdf format) in order to be accessible not only to the global populous but at well to the form be suited to those of the industry… Or maybe I’m stretching things a bit too much, but that’s my excuse and I’m sticking too it.
