Video game streaming earned Pewdiepie $7.4 million in 2014

Posted on Tuesday, July 07 2015 @ 12:22:44 CEST by


I've never understood why so many people enjoyed seeing other people play video games but apparently there's a huge market for it. One of the most popular streamers is Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, a 24-year old Swede better known as PewDiePie.

PewDiePie now has 37.7 million subscribers to his YouTube channel and his YouTube clips have been viewed over 9.3 billion times! As Engadget reports, there's some serious money in this. The annual results of PewDiePie Productions show his videos pulled in roughly $7.4 million in revenue in 2014. Quite a significant increase over the $4 million he made in 2013.
When Kjellberg's revenue numbers hit last year, he was inundated with questions and messages of incredulity -- so many that he did a Reddit AMA to clear the air. He confirmed the $4 million figure and noted that he does charity work alongside his "Let's Play" gaming videos: "I still spent far more money on charities than anything I've ever spent for myself. Which I am proud to say at least." In June 2014, Kjellberg announced that his bro army (see: fans) had raised more than $1 million for various charities, including the World Wildlife Fund, Save the Children, St. Jude hospital and Charity: Water. In March this year, Charity: Water thanked Kjellberg for helping 10,028 people in Rwanda get access to clean water. Not bad for a band of bros.
