Casual Gaming Industry to Exceed $1 Billion by 2013

Parks Associates today released its new report titled "Networked Gaming: Driving the Future II." In this study, the firm projects that the premium casual gaming market will exceed $1 billion in revenue by 2013. Parks also expects that over 20 million gamers will be engaged in free-to-play MMORPGs by that same date.

"Game companies should use social networks and gamer communities as marketing and distribution channels for their new and existing games," said Stuart Sikes, president, Parks Associates. "Gaming has proven remarkably recession-proof, so as companies try to capture subscriber dollars, these offerings will serve as differentiators in a very competitive market."
