Once upon a time–meaning the 1980’s–“video games” was synonymous with “Nintendo”. Oh how the times have changed, as The [a]list Daily’s Steve Peterson writes:
The picture in 2013 is completely different. The Gartner Group projects total worldwide revenue for games at $93 billion for all of 2013. Nintendo is projecting its revenue for the current fiscal year (which ends in March, but we’ll throw in the first quarter for free) at 920 billion yen, or about $9.3 billion dollars. In other words, Nintendo this year represents about 10 percent of the game industry.
