Gaming crowd is getting older

Posted on Friday, March 16 2007 @ 04:30:53 CET by


Nielsen//NetRatings reports 37% of U.S. adults who go online own a gaming console, and 16% owns a portable gaming device.
The majority of those console owners, 71 percent, are married, and 66 percent have at least one child in the household.

"As game consoles have become increasingly sophisticated, families have incorporated them into their centralized home media centers, which include the television, digital recording device, digital music player and the PC," said Carolyn Creekmore, senior director of media analytics, Nielsen//NetRatings.
