Fun with numbers

I know, I know, this is supposed to be a site and podcast devoted to MMOs; but as you’re well aware, our illustrious hosts are quite fond of crossing-over and talking about their love of consoles.  While trolling the internet this morning, I came across this lovely infographic developed by Online Education that has some pretty interesting statistics.  Two that caught my eye were that consoles out-sell PCs 4 to 1, and that Wii Sports is the number one selling video game.  Does this account for each time someone purchases a Wii console that contains a free copy of Wii Sports?  The stat that 2 out of 5 gamers is a female is pretty cool too. Anyway, the numbers got me wondering if the graphic was representative of our readers.  So, without creating the most complex poll ever, we’d like to see some of your console stats in the comments regarding: your age; your gender; your primary console; if you’ve been gaming more than 2 years; the number of hours per week you game; if your console failed in its first two years (Mark); the breakdown of the games you buy by maturity level; or hell, if you even give a crap about consoles.  Inquiring minds want to know!
