Seven year old girls hooked on DS

Having too much fun and giving too many talks to blog properly (talk blog notes coming later), but find this news about seven year olds being addicted to the Nintendo DS heartening. I was saying earlier that games can be very powerful, and pointed out how many adults play them, but forgot to mitigate the undoubted doubters of games being relevant to girls. VoilĂ ! (thanks, DK)

Ewan, I think that what's happening in the game industry is incredible. Yesterday, I wrote about gaming on my own blog. http://www.pass-ed.com/2007/07/changes-afoot-in-gaming.html

Let me know what you think.


Thanks for this Ewan - my daughter has a DS and from experience it's true. But having said that, I have noticed she now plays with real toys more - it's TV that she doesn't bother with much. See http://nogoodreason.typepad.co.uk/no_good_reason/2007/07/girls-hooked-on.html for this in a bit more detail.
