According to Ofcom’s recent Communications Market Report 2010, online gaming has now become marginally more popular than downloading music or films.
Very marginally, mind you. The statistics from the organisation’s research showed that 39% of those surveyed played games online, which was up from 38% last year. 38% professed to downloading songs and films, which was down from 39% last year.
More tellingly, the report also showed that games consoles are establishing themselves more firmly as a viewing platform when it comes to delivering video.
