Games Push Female Gamers' Buttons

Posted Tue, Jul 26, 2005 by Boomjack

The Scotman makes a wee bit 'o a mistake.
The Scotsman has an article posted on female gamers that is very interesting right up to the part where they claim that 60% of MMOG players are female. Perhaps they meant that 60% of men playing these games pretend to be women because they get better treatment? That or they like looking at a virtual female butt while they play:

"The typical female gamer in the UK is 30 to 35, plays for around seven hours a week and spends £170 a year on games, according to report author Aleks Krotoski. "The technology has got to a point that the product being made is more interesting to women," she said. "More women than ever before are playing games. The games industry is interested in expanding its market. The 15 to 24-year-old male market is saturated, so it is interested in exploring different populations in order to reach a mass market.""
