Last week I was checking old posts from the blog when I noticied a great fault: there are very few information about brazilian videogame market here (and I'm from Brazil).
So I've decided to write more about this subject, even with the low number of official researches we have in brazilian territory.
I want to share a good information in this post. It's about the number of brazilians with videogame consoles at home.
One research presented in an important brazilian videogame fair named "GameWorld" revealed that 60 million people have at least one videogame console at home. It is almost 33% of Brazil's population.
The research revealed another curious fact: 48% of the players buy illegal games and only 17% of the sales occurs at game shops.
The company "NC Games" with an important research institute (IBOPE) did the survey.
So, its good news to our market and more than sufficient to prove that is possible to develop a brazilian videogame industry.
