My colleagues Andrzej Cudo, Emilia Zabielska-Mendyk, and I have published the validation of the Polish adaptation of the Game Transfer Phenomena Scale (GTPS) in the journal Advances in Cognitive Psychology.

The sample with 675 Polish video game players showed that the Polish version of the GTPS is reliable, valid, and adequate for assessing Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP) in both genders. 

A total of 75.3% of the participants reported having experienced GTP in the last twelve months. The male players showed higher GTP scores than the female players. 

We also found that GTP were associated with hours spent playing per week in all the investigated video game genres and devices, except for smartphone games.

The GTP scale has now been validated in the English, Turkish and Polish languages.
