Women Significantly Outnumber Teenage Boys In Gamer Demographics

Did you hear that? Women significantly outnumber teenage boys in gamer demographics. Wait, what definition of "gamer" are we using here?

Adult female gamers have unseated boys under the age of 18 as the largest video game-playing demographic in the U.S., according to a recently published study from the Entertainment Software Association, a trade group focused the U.S. gaming industry. While men still account for the majority of the U.S. gaming population, the number of women playing games on both consoles and mobile devices is up to 48 percent, from 40 percent in 2010.
