Germany Leading Europe in Online Games

COLOGNE, Germany — In the video game business, Germany has often been slow to adjust to new trends, but the country is leading Europe in the industry’s fastest-growing segment: free-to-play online games.

These games, which make money by charging players for virtual goods such as clothing and weapons, are big business. Researcher DFC Intelligence forecasts the U.S. and European market for such virtual items will grow to more than $3 billion by 2015 from $800 million in 2009.
