The Digital Australia 2014 report, commissioned by the Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (IGEA), reveals that playing video games remains well-established on the list of favourite Australian past-times, and that more Australians are switching on their consoles, smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs to play interactive games, which is causing a shift in the make-up of Australia’s interactive gaming population.
