The fastest growing segment of these consumers are those who only play games on their smartphones. This accounts for almost half of all video game consumers.

1.5 billion, or 48% of global video game consumers, are PC game consumers. It’s important to note, however, that “this includes some overlap with gamers that also use console systems and mobile devices.”
