Here are the countries bringing in the most video game revenue

June 26, 2014 | By Mike Rose




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.
