Half of American Adults Gamers

A new report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project (Adobe Acrobat-format; pew indeed) informs American adult video game players that we are now a plurality, as their research says: "53% - of all American adults play video games of some kind, whether on a computer, on a gaming console, on a cell phone or other handheld device, on a portable gaming device, or online." This abstract offers other data, including an interesting statistic about senior citizens: "Among older adults 65+ who play video games, nearly a third play games everyday, a significantly larger percentage than all younger players, of whom about 20% play everyday." Also, while consoles are most popular among young adults, the PC is still top gun: "Out of all the gaming devices, computers are the most popular among the total adult gaming population, with 73% of adult gamers using computers to play games, compared with 53% console users, 35% who using cell phones, and 25% using portable gaming devices."
