Software sales booming across Europe

According to data from Media Control GfK International, European software sales are on the up.

Sales have risen by 25.6 percent for the first half of 2008 compared with last year's tally.

Our Dutch brothers have been buying games like crazy, as sales for the region have risen by a massive 46 percent.

Compared with the same period in 2007, sales in Germany and Italy are up 39 percent whilst the Spanish have spent 25 percent more than they did this time last year.

Thanks, GI.
