Gaming is decreasing in popularity
Gaming has declined in popularity in 2017, mainly among Flemings in their twenties and those aged 65+. Last year, the mobile phone overtook the computer as the most common gaming device. This year, however, the divide has narrowed. The use of fixed game consoles connected to TV sets has increased slightly, while portable game consoles remain a niche product. Nintendo Switch, the first hybrid console (portable and fixed), has conquered the hearts of 1,1% of Flemings six months after its launch.
