They're the PMS Clan, no it's not about that time of the month, it's about one of the fastest growing fan bases in the world of video gaming -- the women!
Fact: The average age of a gamer is 35.
Fact: 45% of all gamers are WOMEN.
At Virtual Rush in Media, Pa., you can often find Daniela Lao, who's a member of the PMS Clan. Daniela likes video gaming for the social aspect. She gets to meet and talk to a lot of other women who share her passion for gaming.
Daniela is a hard core gamer. So is Bonnie Hunsperger. Seriously! They're at the controls 6 to 8 hours a day.
Bonnie even started her own gaming magazine, Girls N Gaming. Reviews are on the "extreme girlie" side.
And then there's the story of 45-year old Kristen Morris. She quit her job as a lawyer to open up a video games franchise in the Plymouth Meeting Mall called, "Play 'N Trade." Business is booming and she gets to play Guitar Hero with her kids. Not a bad gig.
You'll see a ton of girl gamers this weekend at the VGXPO (Video Game Expo) at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Video Game Expo 2008 runs until 8pm tonight.
Saturday Hours: 10am to 7pm
There's an after-hours party Saturday night as well.
