GDC Survey Shows PC Being The Most Popular Platform, Followed By Mobile & Current-Gen Consoles

GDC Europe 2015 is just around the corner and a new official survey surfaced, showing the PC as the most popular platform for European developers. This survey was conducted among 250 European games industry professionals who have attended GDC shows or/and plan to attend this year’s GDC event.

According to the survey, 67 percent of those 250 European developers said that their game will come to the PC platform and 46 percent said their last shipped game saw a PC release. And as we can see in the following graph, the PC platform is the most popular platform for European developers (something that falls in line with the previous GDC results that were conducted among North American developers).

The second most popular platform is the mobile (smartphones/tablets). 50 percent of the respondents said that their game will be coming to smartphones and/or tablets.

Current-Gen consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) are in the third and fourth most popular places. PS4 is ahead of Xbox One. 23 percent are working on a game that will come to PS4 and 20 percent are working on to a game that will come to the Xbox One.

In other news, the most popular VR platform is no other than the Oculus Rift, followed by SteamVR and then Sony’s Project Morpheus.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
