The PC versus console argument has raged across the internet for as long as the respective devices have been in existence.

Every gamer has a different opinion about which console is better, or the advantages and disadvantages of gaming on a PC.

Although the competition is relatively close, PC gamers clearly come out ahead of console gamers in terms of market percentage, according to an ESA study on video game consumers.

The amount of gamers in the world has reached 1.8 billion, with 1.2 billion gamers playing on PC.

62% of gamers use a PC while 56% use a console.

These numbers have recently been heavily referenced by Intel, who have begun developing products aimed at gamers.

Apart from presenting statistics about the console-PC argument, the study focuses on the entirety of the gaming industry, measuring gaming demographics, growth and sales.
