In a list of popular trends shared by VentureBeat, it mentioned that sales of games for consoles and personal computers declined in 2015, while mobile game revenue increased and continues to do so all over the world.

Mobile gamers are rapidly growing by the minute. According to Gaming Realms, “gaming accounts for over 50% of smartphone app usage; and half of Facebook users go to the website specifically to play games.” The developer of mobile software Pocketfruity even revealed that the proliferation of ultrafast 4G data connection has made mobile devices the most popular gaming platform currently.
