PC gamers spent $4.5bn, equivalent to the defence budget of Denmark, on kit last year

As a collective bunch, PC gamers in the US alone spent the equivalent of the defence budget of Denmark on hardware and assorted accoutrements in 2020. By dropping $4.5bn on our favourite hobby that represents a 62 percent increase over the previous year, which does partly explain why it’s so damned hard to buy a graphics card right now. Because everybody wants to spend hard cash on new toys.

Now, we all know that things happened in 2020 which made staying at home playing PC games a far more engaging prospect than in a supposedly normal year, but still seeing the statistics stacking up makes for fascinating reading. Well, for a PC nerd like me, anyways.
