Forecasting and Analyzing Digital Entertainment (FADE) has released its annual report for 2009 for Nintendo's WiiWare and Virtual Console services.
The report estimates that the two platforms combined for $125 million in revenue in 2009, with the holiday rush giving Virtual Console the edge over WiiWare ($66 million to $59 million).
WiiWare is said to have grown by over 30% in 2009 compared to its launch year, while Virtual Console slid almost 25 per cent in 2009, leading to an overall decline of 6 per cent year-over-year.
