Mobile vs PC Gaming

Over the past few years I have heard a lot of talk of mobile gaming replacing PC gaming, not to mention console gaming as well. But I think that statement is completely false mainly for one major reason and that is that PC gaming and mobile gaming are different niches in the gaming industry. Yes they are both part of the gaming industry but I believe they are not in competition with each other.

Difference in Audience

One of the reasons I believe that mobile gaming and PC gaming are not competing with each other is their appeal to a different audience. Mobile gamers tend to play games casually in short bursts while PC gamers will spend longer periods of time gaming and often have expensive setups dedicated solely for gaming.

On forums and comment sections you will often come across console and pc gamers scoffing at the fact that most mobile games come with micro transactions saying that mobile games are simply a quick cash grab by their developers and that mobile games aren’t “real” games. While I can’t say whether the opinions of console gamers as well as pc gamers are justified it does seem to give rise to a larger picture. And that is that most console gamers don’t view mobile gaming as a favorable option and thus would rather spend their time gaming on a console.


The main reason mobile gaming is so lucrative is simply that it is accessible to a larger audience. Nearly everyone has a smartphone at their disposal. And because of that people that would otherwise not game now have that option on their phones essentially free of charge. However the same cannot be said for consoles or PC gaming. Buying a console or a PC is an investment that requires time and thought. Everyone needs a phone but not everyone needs a PC or console. Only those who are dedicated to gaming will consider purchasing a console or PC.

To investors and business people it may seem like pc and console gamers are jumping ship and heading towards mobile gaming but in fact they are two completely different markets under the gaming umbrella
