    Massive Multiplayer Online Money Making Machine

    DATA:Terra Nova reports on a report forecasting the market for online games to be almost 10 billion in five years:



    A research firm called DFC Intelligence has released an industry report covering the online gaming market. The Table of Contents is posted on the DFC site.



    Unfortunately I don't happen to have a spare $2,995 to access it but this Media Post article reveals a few interesting tidbits:



    - DFC predicts the online gaming market will generate $9.8 billion in 2009

    - Industry growth will be driven by greater adoption of broadband

    - Women and kids will play a big role in future industry growth



    These forecasts tend to be worth the paper they aren't written on, but it's still interesting to hear where the industry could go.
