Not including handheld and mobile devices or PCs, Nintendo says statistics show that Microsoft is in a distant second place with 11 percent, while Sony trails behind with just 9 percent penetration.
Fils-Aime said that the female market was still a lot smaller than the male demographic in the US though - 11.7 million ladies to 33.3 million men.
Breaking those figures down; Nintendo has 9.36 million female fans, while Microsoft's Xbox 360 has 1.29 million and Sony just 1.05 million lady gamers.
