Recession Proof Earner?

26 09 2008

NPR ran a piece the other day headlined with the abominably delicious pun “In Tough Economic Times, Video Games Console

It’s a rather fluffy piece, but is a non-specialist press pointer to an important trend: Entertainment does well during times of recession, and games are growing much faster than any other form at the moment.

Boing Boing pointed to this with the headline “Games are recession proof earners?“, but I’d really like to see more comprehensive figures comparing them to other media over the next few years.
