SuperData Arcade has shared its monthly report, claiming that the PC gaming market saw a 24% year-over-year growth in January 2018. According to the report, gamers spent $8.9B billion digitally on games across all platforms in January.

The Social and Pay-to-Play MMO segments shrank 5% and 9%, respectively. On the other hand, Mobile and Free-to-Play MMO segments continued to grow, 11% and 1%, respectively.

SuperData Arcade also reported that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege is coming back to life on both consoles and PC due to Ubisoft’s continued support of the game. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite earned over $200 million in digital revenue from console and PC this month, and Fortnite hit record high engagement once again. Overwatch had over 15 million MAU playing on all platforms in January and its combined additional content revenue across both console and PC doubled year-over-year.

Last but not least, here are the world’s most popular digital games across PC, console and mobile.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
