Figures from PWC's Global entertainment and media outlook: 2010–2014 report.

The video game market consists of consumer spending on console games (including handheld games), personal computer games, online games, and wireless games as well as video game advertising.

The category excludes spending on the hardware and accessories used for playing the games. Retail purchases of games are included in either the PC or console game categories.

The online games category includes microtransactions, which are players’ purchases of accessories and additional game content that enhance the gaming experience. If these games are then played online for a subscription fee, the subscription fee is counted in the online game category.
