THQ wireless director James Scalpello thinks he knows why more guys than girls play games. They've got better things to do! Word has it that Scalpello said:
When girls play console games, they have to have gone through a whole other list of things they could have done before sitting down with them... Guys get home, have dinner, and play a computer game. It's much higher up the list of priorities. To put it bluntly, girls have got better things to do.
Oh. Okay. Well. Yeah. Scalpello apparently went on to say, "I don't think there's ever been a successful game really pinpointed just for girls." And after that, he went on to win the hearts of female gamers everywhere. James! James! He's our man!!
