According to NPD Group's latest report, titled "Entertainment Trends in America", America plays videogames more than it goes to movies.
According to the report, 63% of Americans have played videogames in the last six months, 53% went to cinemas, and 94% listened to music.
"Videogames account for one-third of the average monthly consumer spending in the US for core entertainment content, including music, video and games," said analyst Anita Frazier. "While a portion of that share stems from the premium price of console games, we're also seeing an overall increase in the number of people participating in gaming year-over-year."
Other statistics from the report revealed that the average gamer spends more than $38 per month on gaming content, and that 10% of American gamers play videogames on social networks.
