(Woohoo! Portugal not in last! xD )
Overall revenue by region:
A new report from Newzoo sheds light on where video game revenue is coming from around the world, ranking the top 100 countries by estimated total revenues from all games during 2014.
The U.S. is top of the table, with an estimated $20.5 billion to be had in game revenue during 2014, while China is just behind with $17.9 billion. Japan, Germany and the UK follow.
Grouping together the various regions of the world provides a different take on where all the money is coming from.
Newzoo believes that video games will bring in $81.5 billion in worldwide revenue this year, with 8.0 percent growth year-over-year, and the report notes that the top 100 countries by revenue represent 99.8 percent of total revenue.
Not sure how credible the source is, but even if not 100% accurate this gives us a decent insight into Gaming as whole. It's nice to see that despite all the economical issues plaguing many, many countries it's still showing yearly growth!
And this also helps us understand why MS, Sony and Ninty so desperately want a good slice of that Chinese market!
