Sony barely ahead of Microsoft with extra 27 million consoles sold. Is it any wonder Sony is looking to PC to see an increase with revenue.

Reality burns. Sony revenues are not that impressive. MS with 27 million less consoles sold is close to Sony.

@Chutebox said:

What do the numbers even represent?

This Top Video Game Companies ranking is based on analysis of annual and quarterly financial reports published by a number of relevant publicly listed game companies. For companies that do not split out their game revenues, the analysis includes estimates, which may or may not be indicated explicitly. Revenues (GAAP) are restated to reflect Calendar Years, therefore do not necessarily match reported Fiscal Year results of individual companies. Revenues exclude hardware sales and other non-game sales to the extent publicly available. Microsoft and Sony estimates represent all Xbox and Playstation non-hardware platform revenues (including Xbox Live and PSN revenues respectively).

Change column is the YoY change in % and revenues are in USD Millions.

You realize that MS sells games on PC right? MS should be on top of Sony but they're not. Also, look at the change. MS only grew by 9% compared to last year while Sony grew by 33%. And 2016 wasn't all that great...

The good: MS is within the top 5 game companies with growth.

The bad: MS's growth pace is not keeping up with other platform holder Sony.

Tencent is Chinese government supported since they have restricted foreign game consoles until late last year.

@ronvalencia: consoles software is marginal profit for the giant company, they own most of Riot, aka league of legend and probably some of Activistion.

No but you guys claim Sony is destroying Microsoft. Well we have statistics that show otherwise.

Microsoft made 6.5 billion in 2016. Sony made 7.8 billion. For a company thats sold 56 million consoles and Microsoft 28 million gaming revenues are not that far apart. You kind of wonder why?

I think its obvious least for me the xbox box userbase is spending more money buying DLC and games.

MS also include everything xbox PC and surface i am sure.

This chart just shows that the industry is healthy for GAMERS. For the rest of your fanboys no matter how you spin your bullshit each company is doing just fine! This is only showing gaming software revenue for each company and each company is doing awesome. I am sure Nintendo will rise on the chart with the success of the Switch. If you fanboys think any company making 6.5 billion dollars in revenue as bad then you are a complete and utter idiot period. Sony at the 8 billion mark is pretty bad ass in itself. For Microsoft and Sony beating Apple is a pretty awesome feat with all the mobile shit.

Half of that Sony's revenue if from PS+ subscription and still in a distant second place.

Consoles on a death bed confirmed.

Lol yeah they're getting destroyed. They're losing in software AND hardware. MS sells on Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows 10. I wouldn't be surprised if mobile sales are included in that number.And they still couldn't sell more software than Sony who's selling on PS4, PS3, and Vita.

I think it's obvious you're as delusional fanboy trying his hardest to spin bad news as good news for MS. Give it up Tiger...
