It’s not just work, deadlines and meetings on American employees’ minds at their workplace. A new study reveals a large number of Americans play games at work.
According to the U.S. Digital Media Consumers study (PDF) by PayPal, U.S. employees play mobile games (30 percent), PC/laptop games (13 percent), and console games (10 percent) at work.
Recently, PayPal did a massive survey and study on what do video gamers play on and where, and the study finds that the new PlayStation 4 console has taken over the choice over gaming with males instead of PC's, but when it comes to gaming overall, smartphones are still the most used, and sadly its doing working hours, many employees when the boss is not watching is busy playing video games on their mobile devices it seems, instead of doing actual 'work' during their day.
For the study, PayPal partnered with SuperData Research. It conducted a global 10-market survey with approximately 10,000 consumers to understand how people consume digital media, and you can review it yourself in full from the attached PDF, and afterwards we would love to hear your comments on this study, do you think its right about PS4 taking a small lead over PC and over the fact mobile games in very popular and most used during working hours.
