Sales of games in the UK beat film and TV for the first time in 2011.

(According to the Electronic Retailers Association (ERA) video game sales hit £1.93 billion in 2011, the biggest ever in the industry’s history. By comparison DVDs and other video formats created just £1.80 billion in revenues and music just £1.07 billion. I love the way they say “just” – you know just a couple of billion.)
