" 'Despite Xbox LIVE and PlayStation, the online platform that remains the most accessible and robust is the PC.'
According to research company IDC, there are over 1 billion personal computers world wide. The PCGA maintains that 250 million are being used for gaming."
I own 3 and 2 are used for gaming. I'm ahead of the curve. You can say MMOs helped, but all of them combined, probably around only 15 million accounts are active. Real MMOs that is. Not those crappy Korean 2D ones and browser-based bullshit. I just found this fairly interesting. Statistics taken loosely, 1/7 people in the world own a computer. Pretty wild.
