...for more ad impressions and more revenue

Annoying but it only took me 20 seconds to skip through... not really the end of the world. These guys have to eat, lol... People are so entitled to think they should get everything for free smh.

Would have been better if they could've used the numbers of the actual publishing divisions of some of them, it's a bit weird like this....

Man, the mobile market is totally dominated by a few monster companies making an absolute ton of cash. The top 10 apps are all by the same 3 or 4 publishers... it's a crazy monopoly. I feel sorry for any devs trying to crack that market.

Nintendo got rolled last year... better hope the switch keeps selling...

Next fiscal year is already looking like a record breaker for Nintendo, so I wouldn't worry.

That's a lot of money!

Would of been more interesting to see what they earned/ranked from actual game publishing.

Obviously the company’s with multiple successful divisions will be at the top, namely, MS.

Well, it does offer some information on how much revenue is earned from gaming. I mean... who cares how they rank really? It's more just about how much they earn and how much muscle they have to flex. The biggest takeaway for me is that Nintendo can't really afford to **** up as much as people think they can. They don't have Microsoft money... they don't even have EA money.

Nintendo has something like 20 billion dollars dude. They are fine.
The real question is why Microsoft with their tons of cash can't make any games, nintendo has released 5 first party games so far this year (not counting 3ds which boosts that even further) and has more on the way. Has microsoft released a SINGLE game this year?
