SINGAPORE — Video games are booming in China’s smaller cities, with citizens there accounting for more than half of revenue nationally, according to a recent report by Niko Partners.

“76% of gamers in China live in Tier 3-5 cities, accounting for 70% of game revenue,” Niko Partners said in a synopsis of its China Gamers Report.

Cities in China are classified by tiers based loosely on population and economic size. For example, places such as capital Beijing and Shenzhen are generally considered tier-one cities, while lower-tier cities are smaller.

The country is the world’s top game market and will generate an estimated $40.85 billion in revenue this year, according to Newzoo.

“What we think is happening with the smaller tiers is … there are more and more gamers adapting to uses of mobile devices,” Lisa Cosmas Hanson, founder and president of Niko Partners, told CNBC in a follow-up interview.

With “fewer things to do for entertainment” in smaller cities as compared with their cosmopolitan peers in Beijing and Shanghai, “gamers spend their time with little cost entertainment which can be social.”

This could also be attributable to improved mobile data and broadband infrastructure, Hanson added, with “lots of Android smartphones available at lower price points.”

In a country of 1.4 billion people, even China’s smallest “cities” can have a population of more than 1 million each.

For video game publishers looking at China, the analyst said: “If you really want to draw the attention of people throughout the country, Tier 4, Tier 5, these places can’t be ignored.”

Workout sessions can get boring, we agree, but Preity Zinta has a solution for it as she advised her Instagram fam to “get creative” in a new post on Tuesday. On Instagram, Preity shared a short clip from her fitness session as she exercised at a picturesque location.

On two boulders, Preity balanced herself and did push-ups in the backdrop of a plush green scenic garden.

What did Preity write in her post?

It is important for women to concentrate on their upper body strength during their workout sessions, Preity emphasised in her post.

“The one thing we women need to work on is upper body strength. If I stop training, it’s the first place I become weak. So, here I am, trying to get creative with my after yoga push-ups,” Preity said in her post.

What did Preity wear during her workout session?

Comfortable casuals are the best, of course. Preity, 45, opted for a basic tee and track pants. She tied her hair in a bun.
