Sunday roundup.

According to GameSpot [when was the last time I quoted that site?] I am nowhere near an extreme gamer.

The research firm went on to break down the US gaming population into seven groups, four of which use both PC and non-PC platforms. The biggest group makes up what NPD calls “Secondary Gamers” (33.6 million), mostly female gamers who play less than four hours a week and don’t own a console. The fastest-growing segment was the mostly male “Console Gamers” (32.9 million), who own at least one or two dedicated gaming machines and play around 12 hours per week. Next up is the shrinking “Heavy Portable Gamers” group (30.0 million), who own at least one portable and are the youngest group, with an average age of 19. The smallest section is the so-called “Extreme Gamers,” whose gaming habit takes up nearly as much time as a 40-hour work week.

I did not do the Fat Princess PSN thing, which may have been for the best. reports all sorts of latency issues.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 T&A. This one from the examiner is hilarious.

And finally, kotaku figures roughly 11 million folks use PSN. That number does not completely suck.

Happy Sunday! Enjoy one (or three) last cold ones because Monday is coming. Fast.
