Congratulations 28 year old PSN users, you’re ‘average’

Submitted by on Wednesday, 2 September 20093 Comments

28New details have emerged on who the typical users of the PlayStation Network are in North America, and it provides with some interesting results.

The stereotypical gamer for a long time has been a young chubby teenager playing in his small dark bedroom, but that appears to be out of date now with the news that the average age of a PlayStation Network user is in fact 28.

Furthermore, these gamers typically earn at an average to high income, most probably thanks to the premium price point that has been attached to the PlayStation 3 for some time.

There is no surprise that the majority of gamers on the PSN are male, but the service is increasingly reaching out to women and SCEA believe the video download service is helping to attract the whole household.

With the new price point for the system worldwide, the average age of users will most likely go down as more people will be able to afford the PS3 including mothers looking to buy presents for their children.
