The biggest gaming companies by market size

1 min read


Earlier today I posted that rumour about THQ possibly going out of business and during the research of that story I stumbled across gaming companies market sizes and thought it may be of interest to some.

So without further delay, here are the top gaming companies organised by the market size of their entire company on the 16th of January 2012 as listed on the New York Stock Exchange and found on Google Finance

  1. Microsoft – $237.64 Billion
  2. Disney – $68.99 Billion
  3. Nintendo – $19.47 Billion
  4. Sony – $17.19 Billion
  5. Activision $14.01 Billion
  6. Zynga – $6.2 Billion
  7. EA – $5.98 Billion
  8. Konami – $3.79 Billion
  9. Square Enix – $2.2 Billion
  10. Take-Two – $1.26 Billion
  11. Ubisoft – $540.47 Million
  12. THQ – $45.14 Million

Now I’m aware that a lot of companies dual list and you need to do a lot more research before you can definitively say what a companies worth but this is an interesting viewpoint into the companies that make the games we love so much.

Granted 3 out of the top 4 make more of their income from other departments so it’s a bit skewed there but who else is horrified that Zynga (makers of Farmville and the like) is the second biggest gaming software company on the planet?
