I refer to, of course, the annual Year In Numbers infographic, providing you with a snapshot of where the video games business stands as the year ends (perfect for sounding knowledgeable in any remaining meeting you unfortunately have coming up in the last couple of days before the break).

As always, a huge thank you to the experts that share their data and help us compile this together. In the image below, you will find:
