Why does posting a topic about sales always lead to accusation of fanboyism? I thought it was an interesting article, nothing more.

Perhaps if people weren't so damn sensitive about their platform, posting topics like this wouldn't have these kinds of effects.

Take it up with gameinformer. Just because I post an article doesn't mean I wholeheartedly endorse it.

Let's say that is absolutely true, why do people get all bent out of shape at the suggestion the PS3 surpassed the 360?

Err... Fanboyism...? :p
(I got torn to pieces here for having a ps3 preference, so if these figures turn out to be accurate, I'll certainly feel some quiet satifsfation from it)

yes, older people as in up to the 40's. however, japan the majority is hitting 60s+, these are not gamers, not even in Japan.


Wait a minute, because someone is hitting 60 they can't be a gamer? :s

I thought DirtyLarry was nearing 60? :rofl:

According to the latest numbers, the average age of Japan is 45

total: 45.4 years
male: 44.1 years
female: 46.9 years (2012 est.)

The average age in the US is 37 (just using the US for the sake of argument, there are obviously a ton of other places on this planet)

total: 37.1 years
male: 35.8 years
female: 38.5 years (2012 est.)

So are those 8 years really making a huge difference in the gaming demographic? If anything, I would say that Japanese gamers are more the target audience for consoles, as they grew up their whole lives with them.
