A new survey on American gaming habits suggests that nearly a quarter of the U.S. population plan to buy a next generation console. The "Gaming in America Survey", sponsored by Ziff Davis Media and conducted by The Strategy Group, reports that fully 22 percent of the American population is intent on picking up either a PS2, Xbox, or Dolphin. The study found the median age of PC games to be 29 years, while the median age of console gamers is just 17. Core gamers, according to the report, represent only one quarter of the console game buying population, but account for 55 percent of purchases.
