Zavvi: Games may beat DVD within a year

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 19 September 2008 12:00 GMT

Speaking to MCV, Zavvi CEO Simon Douglas has said that games my lead DVD in terms of sales in as little as a year.

“DVD still leads the way but games are catching up quickly,” he said.

“It is possible that games will eclipse DVD in a year, although if Blu-Ray progresses as the industry expects, then it’s maybe difficult for games to catch DVD in total. But it’s a nice battle to have to worry about.”

Douglas’s comments come after HMV boss Simon Fox said at the beginning of September that games may soon eclipse CD music sales at the retailer.
