News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Global market for trading virtual goods reaches £1.8bn a year... more than the GDP of some countries

Think about it.  Most of the sites like Ige.com are already on the shady side due to the fact that most of the games they sell virtual currency for frown on the practice.  If any of IGE's competitors start taking Bitcoins, the rush will be on.

Though I don't do much gaming, I can see how the idea would be just one more sector of commerce that BitCoin could easily penetrate.

Good stuff.

I've always thought the video game market will be among the 1st to widely accept Bitcoin.

Virwox is one obvious example that has good volume & sells and buys game currencies for BTC.

From a business perspective, big shots will probably want the price to have even a hint of stability before adding it as a routine payment option.

In my opinion it's only a matter of time

True and that is already starting to happen. There have been days where the price stayed between 19 and 20$/btc. Very easy to accept btc at that point.

imo a couple of days is not good enough, try several months or even years of price stability and THEN we will be talking

That kind of stability is a ways off.  At the start of 2013 there will still only be some 10,500,000 bitcoins in existence.  Of course, I'm making the assumption that bitcoin is still around and people want them.
