This IDC study estimates home video game console hardware, software, and related service use and spending through 2025. 7th-, 8th-, 9th-, and 10th-gen consoles are considered in grouped categories. Packaged game discs/cards are broken out from digital game spending. Gaming network subscription service revenue is also forecast worldwide through 2025."The console market is hitting on all cylinders in 2021. The three OEMs are all innovating in interesting directions, and many third-party developers and publishers appear to be having banner years. The 'new normal' in the wake of, or at least in the start of the denouement of the pandemic, is becoming clear, and it's apparent that gamers are still really interested in TV-based gaming experiences." -- Lewis Ward, IDC's research director of Gaming and AR/VR
