Our bank accounts are already sweating.

June 30, 2005 - An analyst report released by DFC Intelligence today predicts that videogame software sales will increase on an annual basis from $18 billion in 2004 to approximately $26 billion by 2010. The extensive report contains "best case" scenarios for each of the upcoming next-generation consoles while stating that, no matter the scenario, annual videogame software sales will reach $25 billion by 2008.
According to DFC President David Cole, "The video game industry continues to exceed our expectations." Cole also goes on to state that there is "room in the marketplace for all three major systems" and that this is not a "winner takes all situation" for the competing console makers.
However, the report does clearly have Sony's Playstation 3 as the favorite under all three scenarios. Cole states, "Until Sony makes a major mistake we have no reason to believe they will not continue that success with the PlayStation 3." Despite this, the DFC report does show both Microsoft and Nintendo encroaching on Sony's now-dominant pure market share position with their next-generation systems.
Playstation nog steeds aan top :7
