Give the Gift of Gaming

Video games are a hot item this season, with some hotter than others

Chances are great that at least one person in your house will find a video game tucked under the Christmas tree. Recently, IGN Entertainment, a division of News Corporation, and the global leader in game technology, released its annual Holiday Buyers Guide, and—no surprise—games and gaming technology (consoles, peripherals, and so forth) are extremely popular items (see the story at www.cgw.com/CGW-Blog/2010/November/Make-it-a-very-interactive-holiday.aspx).



IGN Entertainment, however, got more specific about this shopping statistic with us here at CGW. Here goes:
