This IDC study forecasts home video game console hardware, software, and service use and spending through 2027 in four regions: North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and a combined rest of the world (ROW) region. Eighth-, ninth-, and tenth-generation consoles are considered in grouped categories. Packaged game discs/cards are broken out from two digital game–related spending segments. The study also examines key market events and related trends and offers advice and guidance to market vendors.

"Aggregate home console revenue is on track to rise 7.4% year over year to nearly $66 billion in 2023. Looking forward, we don't expect to see global revenue swings of more than 2% in any year through 2027 as PS5, Series X/S, and 'Switch 2' find their grooves." — Lewis Ward, research director of Gaming, eSports, and AR/VR at IDC
