The lights are on
According to data-tracking giant Nielsen, gaming is on the rise. The numbers show that gamers in the U.S. are spending more time and money on video games.
One of the most interesting figures is the fact that over half of U.S. households – 56 percent – own at least one current-generation gaming console. Nielsen points out that this is a 50 percent increase over last year's numbers.
The survey also points to the importance of the Internet for generating awareness and hype for an upcoming game release, and still-rising prominence of mobile devices in the gaming space.
