The Romanian video games market is valued at around 9 mln euros, in which equipment (game consoles and accessories) account for 60% (5.4 mln euros), says Mihai Stegaru, a product manager with TNT Games video game distributor, part of RHS Company, quoted by Ziarul Financiar.
Approximately 20,000 console units are sold annually, while the games market stands at 250,000 units, with PC ones accounting for 75% in the total number, says Stegaru.
The best selling games are the ones that can be installed on PC with Microsoft Windows, with the rest of the market being divided among games for the various types of game consoles.
Romania is a market dominated by PC games, Stegaru says.
The most important launch on the domestic market in 2011 will be the Nintendo 3DS console, on March 25, says Mihai Stegaru. He added a line-up of 3DS exclusive games would be launched at that time, too.
