Women game much more than you realize, research firm shows

GamesBeat: "Women gamers have become a force in all corners of gaming, research company SuperData reported today...

Where the heck did they get the data? Noway one-third of FPS games is female. That makes no sense to me.

This is a survey... Without knowing how they took the survey (Random Calls, At a game convention, on the side of the road), and the questions asked (Do you play FPS games vs. Have you ever played an FPS game vs. in the last 6 months have you played an FPS game)

All these things factor greatly into how the person will respond, and how that response is used. I would also like to see the margin of error?

That is why I hate reports like this talking about polls. They never give the whole story and only show you what they want you to see. Reminds me of political polls and surveys. At least when most newspapers conduct polls there is a section in the back with most that information.
