Forums - Gaming Discussion - Top 25 companies by gaming revenue (up to june 2018)

It is interesting to see that Tencent dwarfs everyone else, at least in the first two quarters of this year. But, I think that they have relatively less exposure to the west, where Q4 is generally massive. So, I'll be interested to see how this looks for the whole year.

I would also think that Apple and Google have relatively weak Q4s, as they're mostly in mobile gaming. I assume that mobile gaming isn't so holiday dependent (though I'm sure it is to some extent).

Hopefully someone will resurect this next year, when we can see all of 2018.

But Nintendo is the better company than EA. Way better practices and more recognizable characters. -_-

The mass population tends to prefer quantity over quality. Which isn't that crazy because would you rather have like 5 guaranteed amazing AAA games each year, or tonnes of variations of indy to AAA games? Some being great, others being wasted digital space.

I think their secret his way more obvious than that :

FIFA : The microtransaction dream (Yearly Edition)

Nintendo, unlike EA, still makes games and those cost money.

Well it is just Revenue. EA can make a ton of high budget games and then sell them for $60 and then charge for DLCs and lastly EA game pass+ Origin. Nintendo only has games, generally cheaper and just launched Nintendo online in September.

You got it. Quantity. More new versions of games each year, and more to do in each. Even if that more is spending more money lol.



Great, another thread turned into a circlejerk against EA.
Sony numbers are impressive, but what I'm most curious to see will be the Q4 figures for both Activision Blizzard ( BO4 + Destiny 2 DLC ) and TakeTwo (RDR2).

I don’t even know half these companies lol.



Damn, mobile is really big. I wonder what will happen to the industry when the mobile bubble bursts.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

FIFA Ultimate Team



None of these numbers are "low". In fact they are insanely high and people still defend that certain payment models are "necessary". These companies are making literal billions on a comparably small work force.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Was expecting Take Two to be higher. Don't they own R* or something?

Top 10 auto manufacturers based on revenue 2017.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/232958/revenue-of-the-leading-car-manufacturers-worldwide/

Mostly mass produced 'garbage'. No Ferrari or Lambo in this list either.

Not sure why you compare videogames with cars 99.9% of people can't afford which is the reason for the low sales but I'm sure even with higher revenue Ferrari or Lamborghini wouldn't be in the list because they are part of  FIAT  Chrysler Automobiles and the Volkswagen Group so that the revenue of them is included in the top 10 at place 7 and 2
