Polling by YouGov for Scholastic in September 2014 found some variation between older and younger teens in frequency of gaming. Nearly six in 10 12- to 14-year-olds in the US said they “play games or apps on any kind of electronic device” at least five days a week vs. 45% of those ages 15 to 17.

And those devices do not lie idle, judging by Nielsen’s Q3 2014 finding that 12- to 17-year-olds were using game consoles about 20 hours per month on average. Read the rest at eMarketer.
