sale of four types of digital games
The bar graph compares the global sales based on the sales of four types of digital games from 2000 to 2006.
It is clear that the handheld games were the most popular games, and the online game increased a lot in the period.
A close look reveals that in 2000, handheld games stood at around 10 billion pounds and had an upward trend, and hit a peak at just under 18 pounds in 2006, while the sales of console games were just around half as many as that of handheld games. In the over following five years, the sales of console games experienced a downward trend, and hit its low point at roughly 3 billion pounds in 2006, which was the lowest level of sales out of four digital games. Interestingly, the data of the sales of online games was not shown until in 2002 at approximately 2 billion pounds, which was the lowest level in this year out of four games. However, the sales of online games increased gradually and reach a high at about 9 billion pounds in 2006. Its sales were the second highest level in 2006.
