The results of the IDSA's fifth annual consumer survey, released today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, reveal that fifty-nine percent of respondents play with friends, and most play with a member or members of their family, whether their siblings, spouses, a parent or extended family. Thirty-three percent play with brothers and/or sisters, 27 percent play with their spouse, 25 percent play with their parents, and a 43 percent play with other family members.
