A little bit of whimsy to end the week on. Voucher Codes Pro conducted a survey of UK citizens, asking them if their partners played video games, and then to rate their performance in bed. 46% were rated at “average” or below at sex, which is a bit upsetting, but broken down by platform, things get quite interesting. 54% of Xbox 360-playing bedmates scored “good” or better, and 22% were described as “excellent”. The Wii U was the next best-ranked, and the PC was lowest. This is all pretty silly and no numbers were provided, so don’t start a flame war, but I thought you’d like to know.
Thanks, That VideoGame Blog.

Capcom executive Christian Svensson has promised to share data with the Japanese arm in January, so get cracking.

Namco Bandai has opened a survey asking fans to vote on which of four looks they like best for Pac-Man, as well as what platforms they use the most and some basic demographic information. Visit the yellow hero’s Facebook page to have your say; presumably the publisher is asking for research purposes ahead of future games, and not just to while away an autumn evening.

A survey conducted with over 80 UK game studios by e-skills, a UK skills council for business and information technology, found 24 percent were of the opinion console gaming would decline over the next year, and 42 percent believed PC games were in regression. On the other end of the poll, 32 percent expected the console side of things would increase, with 20 percent expecting an in increase for the PC game sector. While the figures concluded are a bit discrepant from one another, 89 percent were of the opinion that the demand for social and mobile games would mount, and 88 percent believed casual gaming interest would also continue to accelerate.
