Four Percent of US Gamers Admit to Piracy

Well, at least those four percent are being honest.

Actually, the words are kind of weird. Here is how I understood it: 8,000 people take the survey, some of that 8,000 admits to pirating games, NPD then takes that information and does some fancy math and figures that amounts to about 6 million out of however many million gamers there are in the US.

The Wii is still selling more than any of the other consoles on the market right now, but Nintendo won’t be happy with those numbers.   The DS, on the other hand, good lord!  It still sells like crazy.

Still, it seems like sales have dropped across the board for the month, so no need to worry.  According to some analysts, May is not a good sales month anyway.  Still, it is crazy to see the Wii at anything less than 300k since gaining popularity.

26% of Kids Aged 4-14 Own Videogame Consoles

According to NPD Group data collected in April, from 3,212 online survey participants, 26% of US children aged 4-14 own consoles.

The survey participants were over the age of 23 with children in the 4-14 age range.

According to NPD analyst Anita Fraizier, gaming drives two of the three most heavily used consumer electronics devices, Computers and videogame consoles.

It was recently reported by the Entertainment Software Association that 68% of American households play videogames, and that 42% of US households have a console.
