Console games are expected to generate more than $2 billion in revenue per year in China by 2024.
That's according to a new report by Niko Partners, via GamesBeat, which looked at the predicted growth of home consoles in the region.
Last year, revenues from consoles and their games reached $997 million, but the analyst firm believes this will reach $2.15 billion now that such devices are sold legally in China.
For decades, home consoles were banned in China, leading to the rise of the free-to-play mobile and PC market that dominate's the nation's gaming scene.
But with China allowing the sale of official consoles since 2014 -- lifting the full ban a year later -- the momentum of PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo is expected to dramatically grow this market.
