According to a new ELSPA white paper announced in London today, the European female gamer still has some way to go before catching up with her overseas counterparts, at least in numbers. The Aleks Krotoski-authored report, entitled "Chicks and Joysticks: An Exploration of Women and Gaming" reveals these regional differences, mentioning that U.S., Japanese and Korean women make up 39 percent, 36.8 percent and 65.9 percent respectively of gamers, as opposed to around 25 percent in Western Europe. The paper also mentions that the average age of the female gamer is older than the male at around 30-35 years of age, presumably due to the demographic make-up of 'casual' Web-based gaming audiences, which often seem to attract an older female market. The full white paper will be available on September 9th from the ELSPA website.
