    Talking Female PC Players Will Soon Pwn You

    I know this is not really Wii News.... But come on Funny!!!!!

    Watch out Guy's!!!!!! LOL





    Quote Originally Posted by Fast Company
    n a recent report, M2 Research studied female demographics in gaming. The takeaway? Facebook game developers and casual browser game publishers have done what the big three gaming companies and their consoles could never do--bring women to gaming. M2 estimates that 140 million men play PC games, and 130 million women. This nearly 50-50 split is not even approached by the gaming consoles or their networks:



    Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime is featured in the report, with Nintendo research that "estimates there are 45 million people playing video games as the primary players in the U.S. Of those, Nintendo is estimating 26% are female, or roughly 11.7 million. Of those, 80% are on the Wii, 11% are on the Xbox 360 and 9% are on the PS3." The report also quotes Microsoft's David Dennis on female PC dominance, "Studies have found that in general, most social networks have more female users than male, including Twitter (about 59% female) and Facebook (about 57% female)." Another chart from the report clearly illustrates that women surpass men when it comes to social gaming:



    What may be the most surprising figure comes from Will O'Brien, VP of Social Gaming at Big Fish, "Typically, women account for about 60% of all virtual goods transactions." All of the gaming consoles feature virtual transactions through their networks, but need a larger female audience. With Microsoft and Sony set to release motion control devices later this year, the companies may to attract a broader demographic similar to Nintendo's base. Whether that will change the gender gap between PCs and game consoles remains to be seen. (FastCompany)

    They may be playing the games but it is still the husbands/partners that turn the pc on, login, and start the apps. Women will never figure out how to that stuff. And as for installing a new graphics card.....forget about it...
    L O L.

    Seriously its good news. Now they can't nag us for playing when we should be on the sofa cuddled up watching cr*p

    Living dangerously there, crazycastle...my finger hovered close to the Reading Room button

    I tell my guys that if they can recite Honus Wagner's rookie stats and the timing sequence on a whatever year car they can operate a washing machine. No excuses. Guys can read instructions and operate home appliances-they aren't as stupid as they pretend.

    All my wife plays is Farmtown or Farmville and I asked her........ Should this really count?, Really?... well, tonight i sleep on the couch. You'd think i had dissed her for playing Modern Warfare like a wussy. I just can't see the attraction, but to each their own.... even if it is a Farm.

    Ya I think thats a little harsh. Women are just as capable. They all have different talents/likes and dislikes, just like men.

    In my case my girlfriend was interested in it and wanted to learn more about it. I feel confident that she could complete the softmod process by herself.

    Not trying to start anything here, just an oppinion.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    My gf only plays NSMB.... It is an awfully simple game, with zero complexity.... so that's it. you simply walk and jump... We can marry them and do stuff, but it will be long until they make a formiddable oponent.... Till then, just play with your friends out there guys!!


    Plus, girls out there, bear in mind that if you win, it is because we let you do so... why? here is the explanation:

    Well I know karate, tai chi, kung fu, ninjutsu and many other dangerous words

    plus I can add core loss in the dynamic direct-quadrature model of the asynchronous motor.

    Wow! That really is a psycho girlfriend! That video is scary man! I hope i don't have nightmares now!
    But! That dude is kinda soft for letting his girlfriend get away with that. No way my wife would do something
    like that and get away with it! Oh! And my wife is totally not interested in the Wii.
