The two biggest names that share numbers show very healthy growth in the PC market. Who's Digital River?

A massive CDN & payment processor amongst other things. They host the Origin service for EA as an example. He's talking about new PC shipments worldwide, he's actually pretty bullish about PC gaming:

While global personal computer sales are down, PC gaming is thriving.

Across the globe, the PC gaming industry is growing strong, especially in emerging markets such as Russia, Brazil, and Korea. And there is still a market opportunity for PC gaming in North America and other more mature markets just ask Wargaming, Nexon, Riot, and Valve. We've hit a speed bump in social gaming and I think the gold rush to F2P will naturally subside a bit in 2013 giving way to more blended business models. While there is no question that F2P is here to stay, I don't think it is the only monetization model that works. Make a good game with an easy and reasonable monetization plan and consumers will buy.
