Gaming Numbers

Kara Powell | Jan 28, 2010

Brad Griffin, our FYI Associate Director, forwarded me this creatively done short flyer-like summary of interesting stats on gaming. I haven’t taken the time to verify the stats but nonetheless, here’s what stands out to me:

-There are more gamers over 50 than under 18.

-2 out of 5 gamers are female.

-The Wii is winning the console war.

What stands out to you?

If you’re looking for a resource to send to parents concerned about their kids’ gaming, try our recent article. It’s being published in the new book, Halos and Avatars: Playing Video Games With God, along with some other fascinating research on games.
