[Gamespot] - More Women Own Consoles Than Men in the US - Survey - Page 5

This, I think, is probably the most salient question about the results. I could see...a "single mom effect" for lack of a better term whereby a woman taking this survey might take a broad interpretation of the question asked.

The exact survey question used was: "Do you have a game console like Xbox or Playstation?" "Have" is a pretty vague word there. (Have in what? My household-->anyone in my house owns one?)
I think a better question might be: "Do you own and personally use a game console like Xbox or Playstation?"

It would be interesting to compare these results with a follow-up question asking how much time they themselves spend using said console.

Hilarious when people do something while criticizing others for doing the same thing. What do we call that again? OH YEA! Hypocrites. As hypocritical as it is to dismiss this without any reasoning (something I and others that have posted in this thread have NOT done), it's insanely hypocritical to accept this as legit without wondering why this is such a simplistic study that doesn't explain WHY these women own consoles in the first place.

I think the more important fact here is that 8% of 65+ year old's are on consoles...
How many old people are out there playing call of duty and making comments about other players moms? This raises an important issue.

For some reason, there's actually a pretty sizable contingent of middle-aged/older adults in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Our guildmaster over there is in his fifties, one of the officers is in his early 60s (although he's not 65 yet), a couple more are also in their 40s and 50s, and all of them have families of their own. I'm something like second or third-youngest officer, and I'm still well over drinking age.

I think a lot of people find this study laughable because it goes against our own life experiences. Most of the men I know have a console and play off and on. Very few of the women do. I know my life is anecdotal and has a small sample size, but I don't doubt that most peoples real life experience is like this.

Does the study count more then just xbox ps wii as consoles? If they count handhelds and tablets as consoles that could change things, but I doubt if any of us here consider those consoles. If it is only counting real consoles then I have to question it's legitimacy because it goes against my experience.

In the end... meh. who cares. If the study is skewed to drive an agenda.... It's measuring console ownership lol, so yeah, who cares. The social justice warriors may want more hello kitty games for equality, but the game makers only care about the almighty dollar. They're not going to make a hello kitty game instead of a fps or rpg or whatever unless the money leads there.

Really in America there is this supremacy desire between distinct demographics be it sex, gender, race and etc. They all clump up together and decide how they can completely destroy a country. It's really disgusting. As someone who've recently visit the UK I can already see the bold difference between US and other countries. US will fail if it does not end supremacists in any form or fashion. Perhaps this is just a way for the crooked to rob us all blind while we're all bickering and fighting over freedoms when we should be jailing them firstly.

As if the UK is any different.

These gamer gals bought these consoles not for themselves but for their kids or partners. Anyone who's worked in the computer hardware business can easily attest to it.

yep, keep telling yourself that this survey is biased, but deep down you know you're just a little girl trapped in mans body.

I've played wow with disc priest who was over 60 years old. It's normal.
RPG and MMO's are good for them usually. And since those are same people that simply started gaming 20 years ago it is very normal... in 20 years they'll be 80... and I bet they will still play some games.
Game till you die!

How many of those women were influnced by a man to play video games? The answer 100% of them....I've never run into a female that played games of her own choosing without a man in their life to influence it...EVER.

To me and this is nothing against women at all because their are the extremely rare occasions when a woman actually genuinely likes game. Most woman are programed to hate them.
