The average gamer

… is 26 years old 🙂 [“Consoles herald games revolution” – BBC World]. The industry is worth $25bn. RIAA, your problem isn’t music piracy. Your just losing your core market to the gaming industry ;-).

But seriously, I cannot believe the number of people here in the U.S who grew up with an Atari 2600 and have subconciously decided to stick with playing video games even into their 20’s, 30’s, and sometimes even 40’s. This holiday season, thanks to my housemate Doug, I got to fight as a clone soldier and as a droid in Star Wars – Battlefront 2.
