So unless you're a player that's constantly buying games or downloading apps, you're not going into the store. So the number of MAU's would definitely be higher. Especially for more casual players.
Do you really think not visiting the store once in a month to see new stuff, sales or demos, is that common ? Especially on Xbox where digital sales are very high
I still would say it is relatively common. I wouldn't be surprised if the number of those visiting the stores/websites is off compared to MAU's by like a couple million or so.
Whether it's gamers like myself who don't have as much time to play as I used to, or those that are exclusively into Fortnite, Warzone, Apex Legends, or any other major FTP live service game, you're turning on your console/PC, and immediately loading into the game you want to play.
I have 4 games installed on my PC and that's all I'm going to play for the next couple of months. But even in my teenage years when Halo 3 or CoD Modern Warfare came out. I booted up my Xbox and went straight into the game. Not even thinking about playing another game for months on end lol. Which I imagine is how most casual players operate. Especially those that only play the major FTP titles I mentioned.
Not to mention, there's always going to be the purists that prefer to have a physical copy of their games.
