From Boing Boing: BBC report on UK gamers from 6-65 – contains some amazing figures.
“59% of 6 to 65 year olds in the UK are gamers. In total there are 26.5 million gamers in the UK. The average age of a UK gamer is 28 years old, and the gender split is almost even, averaging out at 45% female and 55% male”
I was shocked at the volumes, the average age, and the gender split. The report is well worth a look and contains some great info-graphics – see above.
