Some call it the ‘Console Wars’. But we prefer to look at them as companies that help providing us with endless hours of fun. Nintendo, PlayStation and X-Box compete on a multi-billion dollar business, not to mention the PC Gamers, who are far from being convinced that a console is better. Today’s infographics cover that and a lot more, with the help of Statista, a2Designs, Game Spot and Extreme Tech.
Today’s selection starts with a couple of charts about the Gaming Industry in the U.S., from Statista and Steven L. Johnson, followed by a colorful history of video games, provided by Colour Lovers. This Daily Viz from Visual Loop comes to a close with One More Level‘s look at the games people play and by Online Dating‘s take on video game movies.
For a huge part of the Gaming community, spending hours facing impossible challenges in front of a computer or TV has nothing to do with ‘just fun’.

Today’s selection, courtesy of Gamehouse, Lumosity, Frugal Dad, Online Universities and OnlineUniversity.net, shows a few different dimensions of the impact Games cause in our lifes – and many might be surprised with some of the information presented here today.
