From DFC: "It has always been a great irony that, as video game software has gone digital, spending on hardware to play games has soared. Unlike other entertainment industries, video game hardware is definitely not a commodity.
DFC Intelligence forecasts that global spending on video game hardware will grow from $82 billion in 2021 to $135 billion in 2026. This includes console systems, PC hardware used for games and accessories such as controllers, headsets, gaming keyboards and mice. However, it does not include spending on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets."
