Gamers spend more hours playing games on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 than any other platform out there including PC and PlayStation 3.

According to the stat-tracking NPD Group, who collected data from over 18,000 gamers who own at least one gaming platform, Xbox 360 owners end up on top, clocking a mighty 7.3 hours a week playing online.

Where I log all my hours.

The survey found PC gamers to log 5.8 hours a week and PlayStation 3 enthusiasts at only 3.

However, the PC remains the most actively played platform, accounting for a whopping 85 percent of the online space.

Anita Frazier, an NPD analyst said online video games are growing, growing, growing.

“The installed base of video game systems continues to grow, the platforms available to play games continue to expand and the options for content acquisition have never been greater, especially online,” she said.

Personally, I fit that mold perfectly. Except for during my World of Warcraft days. Yeah, let’s not talk about that.

    You have to consider that the user base in the US is larger for the Xbox. Then you have you to think of the demographics of the PS3 owners. PS3 owner are normally older players with family, work, and other responsibilities.

    Xbox360 players are mainly teenagers in high school that can spend that much time gaming.

    Granted there are some PS3 players that spend all day and night online.
