Online gaming is really where it's at

I saw this article on IGN.com and figured I'd pass it along. Enjoy:

"Console games with some type of online feature have become commonplace, at least on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. And with good reason -- a new report from research firm Electronic Entertainment Design and Research (EEDR) finds that games with online components can bring in more than twice the revenue of offline titles.

A summary of the reports findings published on Reuters shows that games that allow online multiplayer result in twice the revenue of those that don't, and titles with at least some online component will bring in up to 25 percent more than completely offline games.

"Developers who are not embracing online opportunities to a greater level are leaving money on the table," said Geoffrey Zatkin, president and COO of EEDR."
