Similarly, the sales of online games and mobile phone games increased whilst the sale of console games declined during the six year period. In 2000, handheld games and console games were sold for approximately 12 billion USD and 6 billion USD respectively. Handheld games continued to increase in sales and reached peak sales of around 17 billion USD in 2006.
