• Global: DFC Intelligence predicts PC gaming market to exceed $25 billion this year

The market research company DFC Intelligence raised its forecast for the global PC gaming market this year from $22 billion to $25 billion. DFC acts on the assumption that core gamers seem to be willing to spend more money than ever this year. While Asia remains a big contributor to the market, interestingly DFC found that core PC gameplay in the West increased in 2013 versus 2012, and the firm expects 2014 to be strong as well.
