RPG Sales Up - 4e Fends of Pathfinder for Top Spot

ICv2 reports that in the fourth quarter of 2010 hobby game sales were up 10%. This includes board games, collectible card games, miniatures, and roleplaying games. Amazingly, sales were up in all categories, including RPGs. This is great news!

Despite earlier indications that Pathfinder might be outselling D&D 4e, it appears that 4e has fended of its competitor to remain the top-selling RPG, as reported HERE :

I'm glad that interest in tabletop gaming seems to be growing, even if just a little. Despite all the doom and gloom predictions that came with Hasbro's recent announcement of cutbacks in it D&D line, it appears that 4e is still going strong!
