Worldwide Video Game Console Market Shares, 2015: Sony Ups Its GameThis IDC study primarily examines and contrasts the leading home video game console hardware makers and related game software providers in 2015. North America is broken out from Western Europe, Asia/Pacific (including Japan), and a combined rest of the world region. The state of digital-only microconsoles is also considered in some detail."Sony's PlayStation 4 put some additional distance between itself and competing console platforms in 2015. Sony's PlayStation brand picked up almost a 7% share of global home console retail spending last year relative to 2014. If Microsoft, Nintendo, and other platform providers want to turn game console dynamics back in their favor, they'll have to identify and exploit a weakness in the PS4 juggernaut to do it." — Lewis Ward, IDC's research director of Gaming
