Frank N. Magid Associates conducted an online survey of 743 individuals in December 2012 that focused on the attitudes and behavior among a broad range of gamers. Using a highly qualified sample provider, Research Now, Magid surveyed a representative sample by gender, age (13-54 years old) and ethnic background. A screening question (Which platform do you own and use regularly for gaming) was used to identify current gamers. Those who did not select at least one of the platforms were screened out.
