Video Gamers in Europe 2010 survey
« on: July 08, 2010, 10:32:52 PM »
The Interactive Software Federation of Europe have just released a PDF detailing the results of a pan-European survey they conducted on gamers and gamers habits for 2010 (it's very detailed, breaking the results down per territory). Although awareness and market penetration of the PEGI ratings system appears to be the primary reason for the survey, the results are interesting nonetheless.

The survey estimates there are some 95 million gamers across Europe, only 8% of which consider themselves 'hardcore' gamers (defined by the number of hours and games they play over a given time frame). The PC is still the platform of choice, at 49%, and although the results don't specifically make mention of this, it can be inferred from the numbers that a high percentile own and use more than one gaming device, particularly when hand-held's are included. Download the PDF and read the report, it makes quite interesting reading, if anything 'girls' are catching up with 'boys' as people who are quite happy to call themselves a "gamer".

heh. That's the Euroland average yes, it varies across different countries, the UK has a 30% for example.
