Rise in price of computer games puts up inflation

My first reaction to this was half disbelief and half humor – but it might even be true! I’ll keep watching for the data – if anyone else finds it, please comment. Here’s the link to the headline at The Independent. It’s a UK paper, UK headline and UK data – but still an interesting thought, eh? Are “games and toys, in particular computer games” really big enough now to have that much impact on our ecomonies?

Does anyone have UK game data, as compared to the rest of the world? I’d like t see whether or not the market there is significantly different, given this story.
The gamenews blog at wordpress posted what looks like the complete story.

Here’ a followup story from GAMASUTRA: The Euro Vision: ‘Kids, Inflation, Infogrames – All Games’ Fault’
