Adults Spend More Time Gaming than Teens
7:32 AM | Evan Holt | 9 comments

A recent study by Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) shows that adults spend more time playing games than teens.

The most interesting statistic is that one-third of adult gamers spend 10 hours or more per week playing console or PC games compared to just 11 percent of teens. The majority (64 percent) of adult gamers either mostly or always play console games by themselves and just over half (55 percent) play online.

The survey results also suggest female gamers outnumber male gamers in the 25-34 age category.

Computers are still the primary gaming device while consoles are the focus of the teen audience.

These statistics were gathered in CEA's 2006 Gaming Technology Study, which surveyed 1,767 adults via online survey and 500 teens via a telephone interview.
