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.

The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to bring in $36.8 billion during 2014, compared to $22.5 billion from the North American region. Europe will bring in around $15.4 billion, says Newzoo.

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!

Discuss, System Warriors.

Considering it has 160 mil people and the 8th biggest population in the world its not exactly impressive coming in at 77 :P

EDIT I also seriously doubt the accuracy of these figures.

I am surprised that it is in the top 100. Cause piracy is really big here and I think most of the revenue comes from F2P games.

@blue_hazy_basic: I don't know them either, but we really don't have many comparative sources for all these numbers. We might have some for Japan, UK, Germany and the US, but the rest (I'm guessing) will be pretty hard to find.

Damn. Look at Belgium.

@jeager_titan: Like I said not sure about the figures, but I presume this includes hardware as well as software.

I'd also like to point out that no country with a smaller population is above Ireland. Drunkenly punching above our weight as always, awww yea!

the top ranked country in terms of $'s spent per human is..

japan = 96.21 $/human

japan = 96.21 $/human

Which is ~9 762.05003 yen per person on average. No idea on the wages over there, nor the overall cost of things but that does seem pretty high.

I thought Poland would have been higher.

I guess Japan is still relevant after all. MS and Sony better start rethinking their strategies for Asia.

Asia-Pacific master race!
