Gaming Sales Behind Online Shopping Boom

onlineshopping.jpg2007's holiday season saw Americans set new records while shopping for gifts online. While stay-at-home shoppers spent $US 24.57 billion between November 1 - December 31 in 2006, during the same period last year they spent $US 29.17, a 19% rise. Who's to blame for all that spending? Videogames, which were the fastest-growing sector of the market. Total sales of hardware and software were up 129% from 2006, according to market researchers comScore, so all you lazy-ass holiday shoppers, give yourselves a pat on the back. You just made history.
