UK market: 80% of console/PC software revenue is digital (and grew 20% YoY); also corresponds to a -30% YoY drop in pre-owned game revenue (now an absolutely tiny fraction of total economic activity). More details:

@shivoa and VR hardware supposedly down approx 21% - surprised me.


@jakob Early adopters satiated, not many upgrading already, mainstream still skittish (UK didn't have as many sales events as US for PSVR; Vive prices still inflated vs US). Don't think I've seen any excitement for those cheaper Win10 headsets here yet. Must work out to at least 150-200k extra headsets sold in 2018, not terrible for a smallish country.
