 (market languages gathered and split by myself)

Note that China and Korea are massively into online PC gaming and thus their video game console markets are far smaller than their global VG data shows (and France is the world's most console-oriented market for example http://www.newzoo.com/category/infographics/). So VGC is tracking the right 5 major console VG markets. Next addition would be Italy and Spain, Canada, Australia, maybe Brazil or Mexico

The top 12 reflects quite well the 11 major Internet languages (same list as the 10 major wikipedias by traffic but with Korean higher here and the inclusion of Dutch : http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/wikipedia.org and same as online market share http://www.translated.net/en/languages-that-matter?sortBy=languages#results)

Are the separate amounts for the different countries speaking that language? So the 20 bil English would be the US, the 3.4 bil the UK and the rest would be like Australia and stuff?

Maybe break it up into 2 separate tables?

Poland is the 23rd market in the world and surely going up. Nice to know Also, we're number one in the region - as it should be!



Wii U is a GCN 2 - I called it months before the release!

My consoles: PS2 Slim, PS3 Slim 320 GB, PSV 32 GB, Wii, DSi.

I like the source box. Did you think of that yourself?

edit: oh no it's gone from the OP :(
