"More facts are available at, but it still won't matter because most people will still think that only young males play video games."

It's probably true for xbox and ps. Majority teenage males probably play these. Handhelds, Wii, PC and phones are where the older gamers and female gamers will be found.

what's funny is i'm 37 now, and most of my friends on PS3 average around 28-37.

They're playing Wii with their kids and Angry Birds on their phone.

People of all ages play games in some form now, I don't think people really argue against that.

I've been gaming for 25 years and enjoying every minute of it, business and politics aside.

Yet, bizarrely, 100% of "hardcore" gamers are exactly 13 years old. And male. And ostracized at school.
