The Nielsen data for June shows that gamers' play sessions on their PS3 last longer than any other console, with an average of 83 minutes a session. Next in line is a tie between the Xbox 360 and PS2, both with 62 minutes a session. The Nintendo Wii ranks even lower than "other", pulling in 57 minutes of usage.

The same data shows that the PS2 still reigns as the dominant console for usage, with its game play accounting for 42% of all video game console usage during June. The Xbox 360 and PS3 rank fairly low in comparison, with 8% and 1.5% respectively. What's most suprising is that Wii takes last place with only 4% of the total console usage. 

On the PC side of things, not much has changed, and World of Warcraft is still every PC gamer's crack. It was the most played game in June, outranking #2, Halo: Combat Evolved, by almost four times.
