I'd bet that almost all of those 8% MMO income is from PC too, so why is that a separate tab? Split up the consoles income and add the MMO to PC, and things look very different.

I've changed the header on that report to suit it better;

Is there any sign this is not just another study that totally neglects the sales off digital distribution (Steam etc.)? I haven't bought more than a few PC games retail the past few years, but more than a dozen off Steam, likewise for many of my friends.

The news article doesn't mention this, so unless we hear otherwise, I declare the study useless

If it did or didn't include digital distribution might not change much since then they would need to also show XBLA, PSN, and Wii shop or whatever.

According to the report it includes digital distribution and second-hand sales. But one has to keep in mind that this is just a survey based on 13,000 people answers.

Platform definitions
Revenue figures are based on money spent per typical game platform.
Consoles: all types including handheld consoles such as Nintendo DS & PSP.
PC games: games installed and played on a PC: downloads and boxed products. Excluding premium (casual) downloads from game portals and MMO clients.

Revenue breakdown

Here is a small free version of the report, the full version costs 299 and it includes a breakdown of the "consoles".

Again more useless data. The Consoles should have been broken down, hiding this only shows that pc games are selling well.

the stats/data is flawed. and nekro's examples show why the stats are garbage.

only reason to post this here is to bait/troll. should be locked.

But this is how most of them are doing it, they show a small bit of the reports to the public and to see the rest you have to pay for it or something similar.
For example, to get access to The PC Gaming Alliance annual report you have to be a member of their "little club", but I think to be a member in the PCGA you have to be in the business of PC, like a developer, publisher or hardware manufacturer like AMD, Nvidia or Intel.

I don’t know how reliable this report is, for e.g. from what I can understand of the report the amount of total players in most of the countries listed is close or more than 50% of the population, in some way I find that kind of hard to believe.
But I don't think this report is trying to show that PC is in a bad spot, on the contrary actually this report shows much higher numbers and in comparison to the consoles than most other reports I have seen. And it clearly states that the console percentage is all the consoles together including the handheld devices and that is at least 5 or more.

Without a breakdown of the "console" section it makes the statistics pretty useless. So all types of consoles includes what exactly? If we make an assumption that means PS3, XB360, Wii, DS, and PSP. Then the PC sales a significantly higher (16% PC, 12% for each PS3,XB360,Wii,DS,PSP) and gets even higher if you include older systems that are still being sold (PS2).

While it sounds like consoles are a big market, to get anything useful, you'd need to get the stats for a game released on all consoles + PC at the same time to know which market is better. The problem with that is it is still not necessarily a good indicator because some platforms are better for some game types.
