PC gaming grows worldwide

Despite popular belief, PC gaming is not dying a slow, painful death. In fact, if the PC Gaming Alliance is to be believed (and, judging by the name, they very much are) there has been worldwide growth in gaming on the platform.

With territories including the US, UK, Germany, China, Japan, and Korea combined, there has been a 19 percent growth in the last year. There wasn’t a single territory that had seen a decline.

Alliance president Matt Ployhar (who, judging by the title, loves his job) stated: “The spotlight has definitely shifted back to the PC game market. Large game publishers are looking at digital revenue on the PC game platform as one of their key areas of growth and it is clear that the performance of the PC game market in 2010 is resulting in substantial investment money flowing into the PC game business.”

With high profile titles like The Old Republic on the way, things can only get better for the PC. Or it could get worse. Maybe it’ll even stay exactly the same. Who knows?
