A joint survey commissioned by Sperling for
BestPlaces and Microsoft has rated Seattle, WA followed by the Twin Cities and "Hotlanta" as the top cities
in America for video games. If you don't already know, the Seattle area is home to both Nintendo and Microsoft US
headquarters. GameDaily writes: "The survey took into account the number of video game systems owned per household
(Xbox 360, Xbox, Window-based PCs, PlayStation 2 and GameCube), the number of games purchased, number of game rentals,
and frequency of online gameplay via Xbox Live or Windows games, and other factors."
Here are the top 15 cities according to the survey:
- Minneapolis-St. Paul
- Washington, D.C.
- St. Louis
- San Diego
- San Francisco
- New York
