North American games revenues will grow at an average rate of 5.8 percent per year to 2013, and will outpace all other forms of entertainment, says PricewaterhouseCoopers.
The firm said that it expects games to generate $17.2 billion in 2009, growing to $21.6 billion by 2013.
By comparison, music is expected to decline 4.4 percent PA to $7.2 billion in 2013, films will rise 3.4 percent a year to $45.1 billion and TV subs will grow 5.4 percent annually to $97.3 billion in the same period.

A PricewaterhouseCoopers study has predicted that online gaming revenues will hit a monstrous $68.3 billion by 2012.
This Gamespot piece claims the figure will exceed all other forms of online media business aside from online advertising.
There’s additional stuff over there on expected console revenues. From the site:
The company predicts console games–led by the Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3–will go from $24.9 billion in 2007 to $34.7 billion in 2012, an annual growth rate of 6.9 percent. This increase will apparently come at the expense of the PC, which will see revenue slip 1.2 percent annually, from $3.8 billion in 2007 to $3.6 billion in 2012.
