And just how are you counting that %50? So if a girl likes to play Solitaire on her iPhone is she suddenly a gamer that needs to be represented in core gaming?

I don't mind a female protagonist but not for the sake of just having a female.

Tomb Raider definitely did the female protagonist right.

I don't give a crap because it doesn't do anything do advance gaming. For me to take Feminist serious, they better start looking to the middle east rather than complaining about first world problems. Feminism poisons everything that it touches anyway.

Development costs are going to rise because making the level of detail greater for the next gen consoles takes more developers or more time. More gamers is a good thing because we can support the developers more even if it's a female or male gamer.

They are saying there are 55% male gamers and 45% female gamers. Could you imagine loosing that 45% support for the developers? That would be a HUGE loss.

I would like to see a ratio of how many male to female fanboys there are out there. I bet males would dominate that. I'm completely fine with females gaming. More support for the developers is a great thing. Fanboys just drive me nuts though. Please just use logic and I'll be happy.
