Popular platforms in gaming market Philippines 2020

As of April 2020, the most popular gaming platform in the Philippines were mobile devices. Playing on PC’s and game consoles were also popular among the gaming community.  

Online gaming behaviors

The Philippines is home to at least 106 million people, and out of the entire population, the greater part are internet users. Online activities have become vital in every Filipino's daily lives nowadays, especially in this time of social distancing. Filipinos found a way to cope with restrictions in traveling and moving around the city during the COVID-19 pandemic, and one of these activities was online gaming.

In a recent survey conducted in the Philippines, 33 percent of online gamers stated making in-game purchases because of its reasonable price. Moreover, one of the most popular gaming-related purchases was subscribing to mobile phone internet data packages and buying in-game items such as virtual goods like avatars and skins.

Internet speed set-backs

Although online gaming has become a popular online activity in the Philippines, one factor that limits a smooth gaming experience is the user’s internet connection. Across the Asia-Pacific region, the Philippines had the slowest broadband connection. Getting an internet service provider that provides fibre internet would provide a better internet experience among the online community. One company that has this service is CONVERGE ICT Solutions Inc. and was ranked the second-best ISP based on its internet download speed as of June 2020.
