Microsoft’s Bing have published a list of popular search terms of 2014.
Microsoft’s search engine Bing has just published their most searched terms of 2014. As expected, the search results were dominated by the usual list of celebrities and world events but under the Devices section, Xbox One was the second most popular searched term on Bing with iPhone 6 taking number one.
Xbox One is the only gaming console that featured in a top 10 list which is dominated by tablets and mobiles. This is also a possible indication of the rise of casual players who play games on the move. Interestingly, the PlayStation 4 is no where to be seen in Bing’s top 10 results. Of course, we were not expecting the Wii U to be listed but given that PlayStation 4 is the leading console out there, the results are surprising.
On the games’ front, Destiny was the number one popular searched term with games like Titanfall and Watch_Dogs making up the top 10 list. Interestingly, Grand Theft Auto 5 was the 5th most searched Xbox One game on Bing in 2014. Talk about popularity 14 months later.
