The video gaming industry has come a long way since the days of playing Space Invaders at the local arcade. Turning over $155bn in revenue in 2020, the sector is now predicted grow to a whopping $340bn by 2027, helped also by the expansion of other areas related to gaming, such as the metaverse and augmented reality tech. Even if you aren't a gamer, there are plenty of ways to make money on gaming stocks. What do you think – is it time to Press Start on these investments?

The compiled list below is made up of companies with at least $1bn market cap, which derive their main source of revenue from developing and distributing console and PC-based video games (not mobile). This also means we've excluded companies that dabble in game development, but generate more of their revenue through console sales and/or other verticals. So, sorry Sony and Microsoft - no side-missions allowed here. This list should not be treated as financial advice, and you should always do your own research before placing a trade.
