The amount of people not playing games vastly outnumber those who do. Of those who do, the number playing games on something other than a console is in the billions.

In the larger picture, console gaming is definitely a niche.

You could say that about everything almost. There are billions of people that don't watch soccer, football, baseball, basketball. There are billions that aren't *insert specific religion*. Are these all niches?

1 Billion people watching soccer or 1 Billion people on a religion is very different than 100M people buying consoles, by the order of 10.
