According to a report released by market researcher Newzoo, US citizens spend over $25 billion every year on the video games industry.

That summary includes all online transactions, retail games, used games, and newly purchased consoles. However it does not account for console accessories or used consoles, which researchers estimate amounts to another $9.7 billion.

You can see the full breakdown for each country below.

In all countries except Germany (where PC games are strong), console game spending and used game spending accounts for more than half of total money spent. The report suggests that many consumers now play more than one or two genres, and own different platforms. About 39 percent of U.S. console gamers also play online casual games on portals, and 42 percent of MMO gamers also use their mobile devices as game platforms.

Thanks, Newzoo.
