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.
