Over $136 Million in income for Australia's digital game developers: ABS
Australia's digital game developers generated $136.9 million in income during 2006-07, according to estimates released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
The 45 game developers reported an operating profit before tax of $8.5 million and an operating profit margin of 6.2%.
The major source of income was the provision of game development services ($116.9 million), with most of that income (93% or $108m) coming from overseas businesses.
Games developed for console formats (e.g. PS2, PS3, Xbox, Wii) accounted for nearly three-quarters (71.1% or $83.2 million) of game development services income. Games developed for PC and Mac formats accounted for 14.6% ($17.1 million).
Two states - Queensland and Victoria - accounted for the majority of game development income (40.4% and 33.2% respectively) and employment (48.6% and 33%).
