Kids prefer to play games on mobile devices over consoles

Candy Crush Game Maker King Announces IPO to List in New York

You may have fond memories of playing games on the family TV as a kid, but the next generation might not feel the same way. The NPD Group has published a report showing that more 2- to 17-year-olds in the US are playing games on phones and tablets (63 percent) than on consoles (60 percent). That may not sound like a big gap, but it was only two years ago that consoles captured 67 percent of young eyeballs. They’re playing more often on those mobile devices, too, at an average 6 hours per week. And sorry, PC gamers, your platform of choice isn’t as popular as it once was. Computer gaming has fallen from a heady 67 percent adoption back in 2013 to 45 percent today.
