Claudio Franco

Below are the results of January 2010 Dubit research looking into how young people are using online games.

The survey, incorporating the views of 2,332 seven to 14-year-olds living in eight European countries, indicates that internet gaming has become very popular among youngsters. Many children also said they would be willing to pay for the services, whether through subscriptions or through purchasing virtual goods.
