@topic:

The first ever video game console was the "Magnavox Odyssey".

It was developed in the late 60s and fist demonstrated in 1972.



According to the console's wiki page: "The Odyssey was designed by Ralph Baer, who began around 1966 and had a working prototype finished by 1968[2]. This prototype, known as the Brown Box,[2] is now at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C..

In 2009, video game website IGN named the Odyssey number 25 in the Top 25 video game consoles of all time."

Facts from: http://www.trenditionist.com/2012/04/16/ten-facts-about-the-videogame-industry/

- The estimated time spent playing videogames in the United States in 2011, according to a survey by Veronis Suhler Stevenson, was 131 hours per person in total. The number is expected to be 142 by 2012, which is almost double the amount from 2002.

- Among which age group are videogames most popular? In 2011, 18 to 49-year-olds made up the largest age group at 53%. But people aged 50 and older followed at 29%. The smallest group was under 18 years old, at 18%...

According to a survey done in 2004 by the Entertainment Software Association, 25 percent of console players and 39 percent of PC game players are women. Also, 40 percent of online game players are women.[21] According to another study conducted by the Entertainment Software Association in 2010, 40% of the game playing population is female, and women 18 or older now comprise 33% of all gamers. Also, the percentage of women now playing online has risen to 42%..

The same study shows that 46% of game purchasers are female (Entertainment Software Association).
