    I just have to reply after watching that video I laughed my arse off. Really I'm sitting here smiling as I type thanking anyone who will listen that I enjoy playing non violent wii games with my wife. I'm sure I heard 'you won't let me use the weapons' somewhere in that clip and that just sums it up.
    Remember to click the Thanks on the post if I've been helpful.

    So the A&E-owned cable network Lifetime, in their pursuit to learn about all things women-related, conducted a year-long, in-depth study to go inside the minds of women gamers: She's Got Game: Women & Gaming Study.

    Kris Soumas, head of games for AETN Digital Media, and Matt Lashey, vice president of strategic insights for Lifetime, said they surveyed gaming CEOs, talked to a pool of men, and surveyed to more than a 1,000 women about their habits and opinions about gaming.

    Lifetime plans to offer these stats and details to marketers and advertisers, and use them for their own game-building pursuits. Lifetime Game Studios Korea, is headquartered in Seoul, and they also own stateside.

    Here's just a few stats based on their study:

    * Women play online more than men (55% vs. 45%).
    * Women play more frequently (and differently) than men.
    * A majority of women gamers like to play on their own (83%).
    * Many women say they play to compete against other people (47%).
    * They made 7 game-related buys in the past year.

    They also put women into several separate categories: immersives, competitors, bonders, dabblers and minders. One web supervisor at a university, described as an "immersive," says she can "play forever" and likes games like Left 4 Dead and God of War. Other women gamers, like bonders, love getting physical when gaming, and see it as a great way to connect with their family. (Business Insider)
