Nielsen will be releasing a couple of gamer related studies shortly, which be sure to have marketing execs everywhere browing for potential buzzes and trends. It basically says that gamers are becoming more of an aspect of culture (as the demographic widens), that mobile devices will be more important ... oh and this tidbit, that about half of the gamers surveyed will be patient in getting to the next generation of consoles:
It also goes on to say that PS2 users are likely to become PS3 users and Xbox users will probably become 360 users and rarely shall the twain meet. Unless you already own both, and then you apparently will become a gnome. It doesn't mention what happens to GameCube users, so it's likely their fate is too ghastly to detail.
