Gaming’s gender split equal across PC and mobile

The widespread stereotype of gamers as being predominantly male has been dealt yet another blow.

A newreportfrom App Annie looking into the US audiences for mobile, PC and console during Q3 2015 found that iOS, Android and PC/Mac gamers were almost exactly evenly-split between male and female.

The console demographic, meanwhile, was tilted more heavily towards male players.

Regarding the age of gamers, it may come as a surprise that the console audience actually skewed to the youngest bracket – spanning those between 13 and 24 on average. PC saw the oldest average player age, aiming at those over 45.

Conversely, mobile covered the widest age distribution, from 25 to 44.
