    India might see an uptick in PC gaming later in future, but currently, it doesn’t see mobile gamers tapering down. What needs to be looked at is the root cause of degrading its’ popularity, the price of PCs. Unless, of course, companies like HP put out some affordable systems for gaming. With newer gaming accessories and development in the Gaming community like the VR games, the cost of an average decent PC doesn’t seem to be easing down anytime soon.
