worth £22,000,000,000
............That's a lot of money spent on games.

Considering I've spent over £1,000 this year on gaming I'm not surprised. Lots of jobs and other industries thrive on the games market too. I'm almost certing HD gaming is what drove the sales in HDTV panels.

certing = certain (sorry, wife nagging me)

Think I'll visit the museum on my own.

Doesn't say if you will be able play the games or just look at the old kit. I wonder how many games have already been lost forever. Anyone still got a copy of Purple Turtles, Blue Max, Lesuire Suite Larry, Elite or Hover Bover? With the Commodor 64 you used to store them on cassette tapes, anyone still got a few lurking in a draw some where?

I have quite a few original C64 software in a box in the cupboard (both 5 1/4 disks and tapes, also Simon's BASIC and International Soccer on cartridge), wish I could still play them on a real C64 as mine has now gone belly up!
