Here is a list of the yearly income for the games industry (particularly Japan), from public reports filed by companies, according to online research site Nensyu Labo. Hint: If you’re in Japan, go look a job at Square-Enix.
Square Enix Holdings: ¥21,680,000 (US$272,988)
Sony: ¥9,230,000 ($116,189)
Nintendo: ¥9,140,000 ($115,032)
Sega Sammy: ¥8,220,000 ($103,486)
Konami: ¥6,780,000 ($85,371)
Namco Bandai: ¥6,400,000 ($80,577)
Tecmo Koei: ¥6,150,000 ($77,418)
Capcom: ¥5,710,000 ($71,891)
Keep in mind that the strong Yen makes the salaries appear much larger in USD, and it also doesn’t mean everyone at SE is making upwards $200,000 per year. It’s more mid-level and upper management salaries, I believe.
Still, it’s no shabby figure.
