Nielsen: Americans spend 13 minutes a day playing games with television sets

Saturday, 2nd April 2011 19:10 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

A study from Nielsen states that Americans spend on average 13 minutes a day playing videogames through using their televisions.

The firm’s study, State of the Media: U.S. TV Trends by Ethnicity, found that the average time spent playing changed a bit when different races were considered.

African Americans averaged 16 minutes per day, Hispanics 10 minutes, Asians nine minutes, and Caucasians matched the average with 13 minutes a day.

Gaming made up 4 percent of the five hours and 11 minutes of average television time spent by Americans ages 18 to 49.

Thanks, Gamasutra.

    Which mystery race is playing more than 13 minutes in order to counteract the lower stats from Africans and Asians?
