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

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.
