59% of all mobile gamers are women

Women represent 59% of all US consumers who play games on a mobile phone, according to Parks Associates. Women comprise 61% of all those playing mobile phone games 1-4 hours per month and 58% of all those playing for more than four hours per month. These findings concur with the overall demographic makeup of Internet gamers, where women are the majority due to their penchant for online trivia and card games. Men, on the other hand, hold the majority among gamers who play intense action and role-playing games, and there is not a comparable group of male users in the mobile gaming space.
