Study: Video games worth $18 billion to U.S.

----
The video game industry, which supported 144,000 full-time jobs and accounted for more than $8 billion in game sales in 2004, had an $18 billion impact on the U.S. economy that year, according to a new study to be released Wednesday.

Estimates call for video game sales to grow to $15 billion by 2010. Industry employment is expected to leap nearly 75 percent to 250,000 jobs by 2009.

Haha, well said. Yeah, that's all pretty exciting news. I read somewhere recently (I think it was money magazine) that game programming is one of the top jobs in America in terms of pay and hours and benefits etc...
