I'm sorry to ask such detailed figures but I would really like to know how many games are being put on the market each year. I found some "contradicting' figures in one report its claimed that more than 3000 games are put on the market each year and in some others its claimed little over 1000. Does anyone know any exact figures about 2004? I looked on the site of the esa but there are no figures there.

That sort of market data is only really available if you pay. The reason it is so hard to pin down is that it's not always clear what is being measured. When a figure is quoted without being defined it could be console games, or PC, or both. It may include educational software, edutainment, value titles or titles that are re-released on a value label after previously being full price and possibly even digital downloads.

Do you know where you could get this information? maybe its freely accessible for academia? I would like to know if this number is increasing or decreasing each year.
