PC game sales drop in 2003
GameSpot has sales numbers for 2003 that show PC games losing ground to console titles. PC game sales were $200 million lower in 2003 than in 2002, while console sales rose $300 million over the same period.
I'm sure some will cite the sales figures as further proof that PC gamers are migrating to consoles, but I have to wonder if that's really the case. As online multiplayer components and high quality mods extend the replay value of PC games, PC gamers may have spent less in 2003 because they're still getting a lot of play out of games they bought in 2002.
