The Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) has announced that videogames is the fastest growing entertainment sector in the UK at retail level.

The statement comes off the back of reports that the games market recorded unit sales of 82.8 million in 2008 which is a 17 percent rise from the previous year.

According to Reuters this growth was driven by the enormous popularity of Nintendo Wii.
