There's hardly such a thing as free market analysis reports I'm sorry to say. There's the DFC website which will give brief synopsis of reports but, for full reports, you will have to pay for them as they cost an arm and a leg to produce.

You should search for industry news headlines which will give a brief outline of reports and registering free at market analysis sites will send you heaps of headline figures to digest.

Good luck with your searching :)

As Evelyn pointed out it costs a lot to collate accurate sales data so the companies that do so will charge for it. The best you will find for free are the "headline" numbers such as "WOW has passed the 1 million units mark". The problem with these are that they come from the publisher (so they aren't audited figures) and you would have to be very lucky for figures relating to the particular product you want to be released at the right moment.

There are some other sources of general industry numbers out there. A list can be found here Link.

Gamasutra has several resources for things like salary surveys and game sales statistics. It might help with your research. Good luck with your business plan.
