Today's Gamers MMO Focus Report, as the research was called, was conducted by TNS and Gamesindustry.com and found that 1.5 million Brits spend £10.50 on average per month playing MMO’s.
This is quite a large difference compared to gamers in Germany and France who spend £165m and £145m respectively on theirs.
This is dwarfed however by the colossal $3.8 billion spent in the US, over three times what Britons spend per head.
Tim Ingham, editor at UK videogames magazine, CVG commented:
"Okay, so this doesn't paint a picture of us as the globe's sexiest nation, but look on the bright side - at least, for once, we're top of a European league table that doesn't feature binge drinking, obesity or teenage pregnancy."Deserves a drink that then eh? Oh, wait…
