30% of Guitar Hero players are female (slow news day)

In amazingly mindblowing news that everybody cares about, it's being stated that almost a third of all Guitar Hero players are female. Wow.

"A very large group really wants great guitar music, and they don’t want us to confuse that," Guitar Hero CEO Dan Rosenwig boasts to GamePro. "And there’s another group of people who love that, but also love to have more current music, more family music, music more popular for girls -- 30% of our players are already girls, and we want that to grow. One of the great things about having a franchise like this is you can really meet all kinds of consumer demand"

The very fact that I wrote this story should give you some indication as to how quiet and boring things have been this morning.
