I need the latest (2005) data on video game market size by genre and
including growth rates relative to previous periods.  I see that there
is a question/answer sequence in Answer already but from mid-2005. 
I'd like more recent data if available.

 The context is this:  I need to segment the PC/console games market
to evaluate the most attractive target market segment for a new game
development/distribution platform.

In addition to the basic genres, I'm also interested in the size and
growth rate of MMOPRG (again, latest data preferably from 2005)
There is no answer at this time.
