67% of Americans’ Ass getting Bigger and Bigger

Sixty-seven percent of U.S. households now report playing video games, and more report playing in the company of fellow gamers than ever before, according to a survey conducted by Ipsos MediaCT for the Entertainment Software Association, which represents U.S. developers and publishers.

Some 62% of U.S. gamers say they play with other gamers in person at least one hour a week, and 48% of parents say they play video games with their children at least once a week.

The ESA report also found that the average game player is 34 years old, while the average age of U.S. game buyers is 40.

Forty percent of game players are female, and 42% of Americans are now playing games on wireless devices like smartphones.

And, you wonder why one out of three children in America is obese! It is not just the food dummy! It is also our fat ass on the couch playing video games. Don’t forget to thank Steve Jobs for his iPad which I believe will jack up the 67% to 80% by this time around next year.
