The UK spent more on video games and related products and events in 2018 than ever before, with the nation's games market now valued at 5.7 billion.
The figure was revealed today by trade body UKIE, which has been working with various data providers and analysts to create a comprehensive picture of spending on games in the UK over the past year.
Their research shows the UK games market has grown by 10% over the past year, already improving on a record year in 2017, which saw spending reach 5.11 billion. And UKIE expects this to continue in 2019 and beyond.
