There are now over 211 million Mobile gamers on devices like Android and iPhone as of 2012 data which was compiled by leading advertisement and advisory firm SponsorPay who worked with EA, Zynga, Ubisoft, and others to ensure the accuracy of their information. Some of the other interesting pieces of information released today in their Mobile Gaming Infographic include statistics that 53% of Mobile gamers are women, the majority of Mobile gamers are between 25 – 34 years old (though the spread across all age demographics is almost perfectly even), and 31% of gameplay sessions occur in bed.
Words With Friends, Angry Birds Star Wars, and Monopoly are listed as top games alongside Candy Crush Saga, Texas Holdem Poker, and Farmville 2. The infographic also includes the recent revelation that PC Gaming has surpassed Console Gaming in terms of usage citing Mobile at 33%, PC at 32%, and Console at just 18% narrowly beating out Dedicated Handheld Game Devices at 4% and Tablets at 13%.
Over 117 minutes a day are spent by the average American gaming on a Mobile device, which is more popular than the 98 minutes a day an average American spends watching television. Mobile gaming is almost more popular than actual non-gaming apps on mobile, with 45% of app usage being purely gameplay. You can find the full infographic on SponsorPay’s website here.
