Are you ballin'? Rolling in cash like Scrooge McDuck? Do you 'make it rain' when you're out on the town? You might be one of the wealthy gamers. A survey sent to us by SeekingArrangement.com says that the majority of "successful" men play games. They surveyed almost 14,000 guys that make at least $100,000 (I wouldn't call $100k yearly wealthy, but okay) and found out that 54 percent of them play games at least once a week. 

I like that they're trying to bust up the correlation between gaming and lack of success with this data. While 46 percent of those surveyed say they do no play games (lame), most do. From $100,000 to $200,000 a year actually spends the least amount of time gaming, clocking about 5 hours a week. The guys that make between $300k to $400k spend over 10 hours a week, though.

The majority of these gamers say that Xbox 360 is their console of choice (41 percent), with PS3 coming in second playce at 26 percent. 

The site’s founder and MIT graduate, Brandon Wade, said:

"Many assume that time spent gaming is a detriment to success, which is completely false. Our survey indicates that gaming is an outlet, not distraction, in a wealthy man’s life. The difference between a successful man and an unsuccessful gamer is moderation. Whether it be regularly dating or regularly gaming, the key to enjoying any outlet is moderation."

Annual Salary vs. Hours Played (According to 7,413 Men Who Game)
1.) $100,000-$200,000 (1,354 Members) - 5.2 Hours Per Week
2.) $200,000-$300,000 (3,081 Members) - 6.7 Hours Per Week
3.) $300,000-$400,000 - (2,027 Members) 10.3 Hours Per Week
4.) $400,000-$500,000 (312 Members) - 2.2 Hours Per Week
5.) $500,000+ (639 Members) - 0.8 Hours Per Week

Wealthy Mens’ Favorite Console (According to 7,413 Men Who Game)
1.) X-Box 360 - 41% (3,039)
2.) PlayStation 3 - 26% (1,928)
3.) PC - 25% (1,853)
4.) Nintendo Wii - 8% (593)
