New research from market research firm the NPD Group reveals that a wide swath of the Brazilian population plays games on a variety of different devices, including consoles, PCs, and mobile phones.

82 percent of the population in the 13-59 age range plays games, according to the research firm, which also says that while teens are in the lead, 65 percent of Brazilians ages 45-59 play games.

The most popular platform is PC, at 47 percent, with Android in second place at 38 percent. However, consoles are a popular "primary device," according to the research, too. Sony has recently begun building the PlayStation 4 in the country in a bid to increase its viability -- imported consoles face strong tariffs.

There's more info at the NPD Group's site, and you can also purchase the full report from the company if you crave the detailed data.
