GI writes that a Deloitte survey has unearthed that the average UK household plays over six hours of videogames each week.

“Gaming has been traditionally frowned upon by parents. However it is now considered ‘family time’ for many people aged between 26 and 42,” said Jolyon Barker, head of technology, media and telecoms at Deloitte.

“Although interest declines after the age of 40 this could change as a generation of gamers grows up.”
