Sony has managed to stay on the top of the list for quite a while now and with the release of Ps5, the Japanese tech giant busted all charts and went on to become the most successful video game developer in 2021. Sony not only produces consoles but also makes exclusive games for them which are always a treat to play, with the staggering revenue of 25 million coming solely from the games sector.
The reason why I think Sony still manages to stay ahead of its competition is by releasing titles that are exclusive to their own gaming consoles line. There’s no doubt that many of these titles are literally the best of the best and you just can’t resist buying these games.
The Gaming Market has easily surpassed most of the other entertainment industries for the very right reasons. Some of the credits for this incredible boom definitely go to the Pandemic, which brought in a ton of people into the market.
