Watch Inside Virtual Goods on CNBC

Yesterday, we announced the release of our new Inside Virtual Goods: The US Virtual Goods Market, 2009 – 2010 research report, exclusively focused on the size and future of the virtual goods market in the United States. The big picture? We estimate the total 2009 US virtual goods opportunity at just over $1 billion.
