DFC intelligence, a market research firm in the game industry, released its latest global video game player segmentation report on Friday, with a global gamer population of more than 3 billion by the middle of this year. As expected, the mobile game market is currently the fastest growing market, with nearly half of the 3 billion players playing games only using smartphones. The report also includes data by region, showing that Asia has the largest market for mobile games only.

when it comes to dedicated console game systems, only about 3% of the world’s population and 8% of game players are console consumers. However, the per capita consumption of this consumer group is the highest. There are about 888 million PC games in the world. (this includes some overlap with gamers using both console systems and mobile devices.)
