32 percent of the UK population have identified themselves as gamers, according to a new survey conducted by ELSPA.

34 percent of UK men define themselves as gamers, versus 31 per cent of women.

As you'd expect gaming is a particularly popular pastime among youngsters, according to the survey, with 74 per cent of 16-19 year olds defining themselves as gamers and 60 per cent of 20-24 year olds.

ELSPA says the PC is the most popular gaming platform, being used by 33 per cent of players, beating Wii and Xbox 360 with 36 per cent combined. PS3 figures weren't included.

"In the last few years the development of motion sensor technology saw gaming become more accessible to new audiences who didn't previously connect with the industry," said ELSPA boss Mike Rawlinson.

"With the growth of gaming platforms such as social networking sites and the iPhone, we are witnessing once again the growth of gaming into new areas of
society, truly showing that the UK is a nation of gamers."

Saying you are a gamer and actually being a gamer are 2 very different things.
