Games console households

17 January 2017


An interactive version of this chart is available here.


The games console tracker follows the number of homes with a games console connected to a TV set. The Establishment Survey tracks each generation of the three main console brands: Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox and Nintendo.  Recent declines in the overall ownership, driven by Nintendo, have now stopped, with overall ownership holding steady at 8.2m households.  We featured the recent declines in ownership in the Q1 2016 edition of the UK Television Landscape Report.
