According to an analysis of subscription services such as the Xbox Game Pass or PlayStation Plus, the influence on the gaming industry falls rather low compared to the music and film industry.
According to Piers Harding Rolls from Ampere Analysis, such subscription services for games make up 4% of revenue in North America and Europe.
That would be just 3.7 billion of the 81 billion generated in these regions with games (discs, downloads, add-ons).
If you look at the music industry, this is just a drop on the hot stone.
Because there streaming services like Spotify made 83% of the revenue last year.
According to the analysis, Microsoft should continue to take a market share of 60% with its 25 million Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
