With the success of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo is now back the top ten companies by video game revenue. The information was shared by data site Newzoo whose “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.” The site has also produced some informative graphs detailing general video game hardware vs software revenues and Nintendo’s own hardware vs software revenues. Take a look below.
In 2017, Nintendo’s hardware revenues grew by 266 percent from a year earlier, hitting $5.5 billion, and 48 percent of these revenues were earned in Q4 2017. This is more than both Microsoft and Sony, who earned $2.billion and $5.1 billion respectively, with hardware.
