    [POLL] Age Range of 3DS users

    Hello,

    So I just ordered a 3DS XL from Amazon to play Pokemon X/Y and mostly RPGs.

    According to my friend, most people who use the 3DS or any other handheld console for that matter are kids between the ages of 7-13. I know he's wrong since there are many Nintendo fans who've been playing on handheld consoles for a long time.

    So, I'm interested in knowing what age group has the most 3DS users.

    Got a 3DS XL from my GF as christmas present, I am 22 :-)
    I don't know anyone else with a 3DS but you can only vote once anyway so your poll will be flawed by MMO-Champions demograpgh (which I expect to be 16+)

    I'm way into my thirties, and I bought myself a 3DS to play Virtue's Last Reward. Lovely game, highly recommended. But I've been enjoying the new Zelda as well.

    Wouldn't touch one myself as the available games are not really my thing, but both my 58 year old mother and my 7 year old daughter spend way too much time using theirs, playing puzzle games and pokemon respectively.

    3DS would seem to be ideally targeted at both mature players (over 50's), young children and teenagers. I can't see it being particularly attractive to adults of shall we say working age.

    And yet 85% of voters so far would prove you wrong.

    Considering that not many children or over 50's frequent this forum, the poll proves nothing of the sort, it in fact proves diddly squat due to it being biased because of the mmo champion audience demographic.

    Do you have a poll that shows "Working Adults" as you call it dose not play the 3DS a lot...Nope didn't think so.

    Also I am sure there is a decent amount of both groups on this forum.

    (it proves that people outside your suggested age ranges find something attractive about the system and its games)

    Dude, you can't get a good estimate here lol.

    Also, fyi, kids are not only gameboy anymore...Atleast my sisters like Ipads now...And other kids inn my family to.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    You kinda can if the poll allows for more then one vote and people vote who they know plays the 3ds as well like there kids or friends.

    Handhelds haven't been "Just a kid thing" for quite sometime tho.

    Hell there is a decent mixed age group on this site that alone gives u a decent poll.
