For our coverage of netbars today, we visit iResearch for some statistics.
Our appetizer: there are a decreasing number of netbars.
(green = 10,000s of netbars)
For our main course: the 2nd-tier cities have the most netbars.
(left = # netbars, green = first-tier city, yellow = second-tier city, blue = third-tier city)
And finally, for our dessert: gamers actually support the mandatory 3-hour break!?
(Of the 4460 polled, how many were parents?)

One comment on “Some stats, some dubious”
The last is indeed interesting. It could be that the folks who answered the survey felt that they “should” say that they support the fatigue law (which removes all in-game incentives for continuing play after 3-5 hours). Another possibility is that older gamers DO support the fatigue law for younger gamers, and have their own ways of getting around the regulation.
