Chart: Social Game Vs. Console Game Sales In Japan Since 2007/2008


Japanese business daily The Nikkei recently published a story on the PS4 in which it showed a chart that compares the sales of social games with those of console games (hard- and software) in Japan since 2007/2008.

I found it interesting enough to post it below.

It visualizes the unbelievable growth that social gaming companies like Mobage operator DeNA or GREE have seen over the last years (more on that here).

Note that social games in Japan are essentially all mobile: apart from Yahoo Mobage, there is only Mixi‘s PC-based social gaming platform over here that matters – and in the case of Mixi, too, most of the traffic comes from mobile devices.
