Online gaming and game services market revenue in Japan 2008-2017

The online game market in Japan generated a revenue of approximately 84 billion Japanese yen in 2017, which constituted a decrease of around eight billion yen compared to the previous year. As the statistic only includes packaged sales for PCs and home consoles as well as revenues of game services, smartphone games are not included. The high popularity of smartphone games in Japan in recent years is believed to contribute to the decline of the console market, which saw decreasing figures until the release of the Nintendo Switch in 2017.
