The PC games market has surpassed the console gaming market in revenues, according to DFC Intelligence owner David Cole. Speaking to PCR, Cole says that PC game software sales have generated more than consoles on a global basis.
"Among core gamers there is a heavy overlap with most console gamers also playing on a PC. The big difference is that consoles are now the luxury item and PCs are the necessity. Just a few years ago the reverse was true. This means PCs have the broader audience."
