U.K. Game Market Declines

The U.K.'s Entertainment Retailers Association says the overall game market in the U.K. declined by 17.4% in 2012 reports MCV. That figure encompasses digital as well as retail sales, as a 26% drop in physical sales more than offset a 7.7% increase in digital sales.

So the UK tracks its digital sales? We don't hear about them here in the US.

I'd love to know how they collate accurate digital sales figures, considering how many different e-tailers there are..I'm in the UK and I buy a lot of games off Steam, but can Valve et al really be bothered to pigeonhole their sales based on location and then hand that data over to a third party?
