Games are available on multiple devices, including PCs, consoles, mobile phones, etc., and PCs and consoles have always dominated the market, but with smartphones becoming more powerful day by day, the player base has shifted a lot. 

Based on the survey conducted by ExpressVPN, 70% of people out of 1,000 professed gamers in the U.S. and 1,000 in the UK have said that their preferred platform is a mobile phone, making them the number 1 gaming device.

It doesn’t mean that PC and console gaming has faded away, as 61% of the gamers who participated in the survey love to play on consoles, and 50% of them like PC gaming. 

However, the high percentage of people playing mobile games is an interesting fact, and according to Astra from Ninjas in Pyjamas, “It makes sense because the phone is a device we use 24/7 in our daily lives for everything. Buying extra consoles or even a PC costs much more. The phone, in a sense, is kind of all-in-one (gaming, calling, watching, etc.).”

A lot of publishers are trying to target mobile gaming audiences, which is why many popular titles like Call of Duty, PUBG, Genshin Impact, and more are available for mobile devices, with more releasing soon, including Valorant Mobile, Call of Duty: Warzone, etc. 

“I’ve already seen a few mobile LAN tournaments pop up that are adapted from the same areas where I’ve competed,” Aleksib from Ninjas in Pyjamas tells ExpressVPN. “Mobile games are just getting bigger and bigger.”
