The FINANCIAL — Anyone who’s been outside lately has likely seen the effects of Pokémon Go, the new reality-integrated game sweeping the world. Players use their smartphones to capture Pokémon characters in the real world and train them as in the original Nintendo video games, but not everyone is on board with the latest gaming trend.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 28% of all American Adults say they or any of their close friends or family members play Pokémon Go, which just launched in the United States earlier this month but has already seen massive popularity. Nonetheless, 67% say neither they nor their friends and family have played the new video game, according to Rasmussen Reports.
The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on July 14 & 17, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
