Video games getting more popular than TV

Posted on Sunday, April 12 2009 @ 01:55:39 CEST by

The latest State of the Video Gamer report from Nielsen, which is based on data from Q4 2008, contains some interesting observations. CNET reports more and more heavy gamers from the US tend to play video games during primetime TV hours, and use time-shifting technologies like TiVo DVRs to catch up on shows later in the night.

Especially PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers tend to be watching less Prime Time TV. The most popular console in terms of total minutes of usage is still the PlayStation 2, followed by the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. Another interesting observation is that the most popular PC game was Microsoft's Solitaire, this card game had more than 17 million players in December 2008.

The report also found that females 25 years of age and older account for 46.2 percent of all players and 54.6 percent of all game play minutes in December 2008.
