Nintendo Switch is dominated by American women, reveals a study. More than half of its user base are female, something that is also seen on Xbox (45%) and PS5 (41%).
The new data comes from a study done by Circana, where it appears that more than half of the users on Switch are women; and yes there is criticism, whether they play or not it seems that there is always criticism.
The well-known executive director and video game analyst in the US, Mat Piscatella, published through his Twitter account some recent data on who buys and plays video games in the United States.
Piscatella He said at the beginning that until the moment of 2023 and according to Circana’s PlayerPulse (monthly monitoring study on consumer awareness and engagement), there are many women on all platforms.

As we see in Kotaku, many people react to this data with “it makes sense” or “it’s reality and I play with friends in 2023”, criticism for seeing women in video games is the same as not seeing them.
In the responses to Piscatella’s tweet, many reactions are angry, skeptical and with bad jokes. There are those who think that the data is wrong or that the data is biased because there are a lot of mothers buying consoles.
But as it is said in the aforementioned medium, monthly surveys do not work like this and data is not collected in this way either, it is something that Piscatella said in subsequent tweets.
