China’s online gaming industry is massive, as revealed by a new infographic from web design and development team Go-Globe. 

Even though video game consoles have been banned on the mainland for the past 13 years, PC-based games and mobile titles brought in billions of revenue last year, with Tencent, the Chinese technology giant behind WeChat, raking in the most profit. 

Overall, computer game companies in China made 82.1 billion yuan (HK$105 billion) in 2013, an amount that is estimated to grow to at least HK$125 billion by the end of 2014.
