Video games: Apple earns more than Microsoft

It sounds a little crazy said like that, but the numbers don’t lie: video games bring more money to Apple than to Microsoft, despite the Xbox.

The apple brand would be behind Sony and the giant Tencentbut ahead of Microsoft, Google, Activision/Blizzard and Nintendo, in NewZoo’s analyst rankings, showing each company’s video game revenue in 2021.

If Tencent logically dominates the ranking (the Chinese company owns big titles like PUBG and League of Legends), the presence of Apple in the top three can be explained by the power of the App Store, a real cash cow for the Cupertino company. In addition, Apple is even more present in the video game industry since the launch of Apple Arcadethis subscription service offering hundreds of games for 4.99 euros per month.
