PCGA State of the Game 2008 Commentary

Posted Mar 23, 2009 by Jon Wood

PCGA State of the Game 2008 Commentary

Today the PC Gaming Alliance, a not-for-profit group, released its "State of the Game 2008" Report. MMORPG.com Managing Editor Jon Wood took a quick look and pulled out some of the interesting tidbits of MMO information and offers some of his own commentary.

The PC Gaming Alliance announced today that they had released their “State of the PC Gaming Industry in 2008” report. Being the PC gaming fan that I am, I gave it a read and wanted to pass on some of the more interesting MMO-related facts to everyone here:

Readers may or may not be surprised to learn that MMOs lead the pack in terms of both revenue and profits. This isn’t particularly surprising when one takes into account the top markets that the PCGA folks talk about. The first, and in a category of its own, is World of Warcraft. With revenue that the report clocks in at over $1 Billion annually, it’s hard to argue that Blizzard’s juggernaught is anything other than the forerunner in the business. The other major contributing factor that the report mentions are “several Asian MMOGs” that are generating over $100 million a year.
