Today at DMW 2013 it was revealed that video games hold the lion share of digital sales across all media. Video games hold a 42% share of the digital marketplace, the largest piece of the pie, with music at a close second at 32%. This is evidenced by an ever growing amount of digital retailers like Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Store.

The digital game market is a staggering figure moving forward for the gaming industry. There’s tons of potential for trimming away the cost of physical media and making game development and publishing more lucrative as we move forward into an even higher adoption of digital media.
