AFP | December 12, 2015

Despite widespread belief, women are just about as likely as men to have ever played video games, a Pew Research Center survey released Tuesday revealed.

But Pew said "data showed that a nearly identical share of men and women report ever playing video games," at exactly half of men and 48 percent of women.
