UK gamers are oldest in Europe

According to this MCV piece, a GameVision report has shown that Britain has the oldest gamers in Europe, on average.

The research showed that 29 percent of male active gamers, and 30 percent of female active gamers are said to be 35 years old or over in the UK, compared with 24 percent and 25 percent in Spain and Italy.
