Alice's Wonderland blog is a daily read, and today she's got a weighty piece of research for us to check out. Gamers in the UK - Digital Play, Digital Lifestyles
is research into the gaming habits of 3,442 citizens of the United Kingdom. Results are broken down by age category, with some interesting revelations in nearly every group. From the paper: "At 82%, gamers still form a clear majority of 16-24 year olds. 81% are 'heavy' gamers playing at least once a week, which may explain why the majority placed videogaming second in their preferred entertainment list (watching TV now coming in first). There are also more 'medium' gamers (14%) playing only a few times a month, than the two previous groups. This age group is also the one with the lowest proportion of female gamers at 44% - is this an indication that the choice of games targeted at this group is less appealing to females?"
