Average PSN user is male, 28 and educated

PS3 fanboys generally come across as emotionally retarded 14-year-olds with severe learning disabilities and a crippling dependency on the validity of a hunk of plastic as a means of proving their own worth. Amazingly, however, the users more commonly associated with the PlayStation 3 are educated adults with decent jobs. Quite, quite amazing.

"Right now, it's primarily male," said PSN director of operations Eric Lempel when asked about the PSN audience. "The average age is 28 years old, in usually the middle- to higher-income range. They over-index against those with graduate degrees. But it's expanding.

"What we're finding ever since we've introduced services like the video download service, we're getting more of the household on the PlayStation Network. Some of the top rentals and sales on the video side have been content that probably doesn't appeal exactly to that 28-year-old male. It's more those movies that are geared toward women."

This news is pretty good, as it proves that the sniveling fanboy class truly is a minority. Either that, or it proves that otherwise educated and well adjusted adults turn into teenage psychopaths as soon as they get online and start talking about the PS3. Let us pray that it's the former.
