The short version of the story…..thanks to the rising price of movie tickets + snacks, coupled with the rise of casual gaming (flash games, cell phone games, etc…) more people (63%) paid for a video game in the last 6 months. This is compared to 53% who paid for movie tickets, and a whopping 94% who paid for music (fuck you RIAA and your claim that no one is buying music). All according to NPD’s March 2009 update to the “Entertainment Trends In America” consumer tracking study which can be found here for a price.
