For Immediate Release
Brighton, England, 12th February 2010. Eurogamer, Europe's leading independent games media specialist, is pleased to announce this year's ABCE Audit figures. During the last audit 4,533,609 unique users tuned in to get their gaming fix across the Eurogamer Network, proving that once again gamers love Eurogamer as much as Eurogamer loves games.
Gaming fans have been clicking by the millions in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and many other territories to get their daily fix of news, reviews, features and the behind-the-scenes games industry insight. In total over 35 million pages of content were viewed during the month.
The increase in numbers coincides with a general growth trend across the company. 2009 saw the launch of the Get Games digital download service and the Eurogamer iPhone app, while GamesIndustry.biz moved to a trade-only focus. The company also announced the appointment of several high-profile industry figures. The Eurogamer Expo, the UK's biggest videogaming event, was a big hit last year with 14,000 attendees getting their hands on the latest and greatest videogames at the show.
"In a year where the whole world seems to be talking about downsizing it's great to be able to illustrate consistent growth across the board," said Rupert Loman, Managing Director at Eurogamer. "We're very pleased with the results and they reflect the end to another very positive year for the network."
