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. Overall ownership of games consoles fell for the fourth consecutive quarter to stand at 7.87m – down 2.5% on Q4 2017. Xbox ownership increased by 1.2% quarter-on-quarter, while Nintendo and PlayStation ownership declined. Despite a quarterly decline, PlayStation was the only brand to see a year-on-year rise – increasing by 0.6% compared to Q4 2018.
