All women gamers, please stand up

This BBC report looks at how the gaming industry are beginning to take notice of women gamers, and outlines some of the steps they plan to take to encourage them - including a pink version of the playstation and a game based on desperate houswives.

More interestingly however, are the commments left by readers towards the end... many of them highlight that women gamers are more established than the big companies perhaps assume, and that most gamers - male or female - just want some new, inventive games to be created, rather than using gimmicks and repeating the same old games formulas.

A perfect example is Alyson Johnson from Newcastle upon Tyne who says "I don't want pink consoles, I don't want fluffy wuffy games that make me feel cuddly, I want excitement and more importantly games which are innovative and fun."
