The latest NPD report cites game consoles as the third largest category of online devices connected to the Internet by residents of the United States. Figures in the report show 425 million web-connected devices in US American homes, 39 million of which are game consoles. The figures are interesting because the most recent US census report shows 315 million people live in the country – meaning there are 110 million more devices connected online than there are residents. Other connected devices used are as follows: desktops/laptops (183.8 million), smartphones (133 million), 31.8 million tablets, 16 million online HDTVs, 12.9 million connected Blu-ray players, and 8.5 million streaming media boxes.
