‘presumers’ = gamers

Presumer = consumer involvement with products and services pre-launch.

2012 data suggests that presumers have the same kind of profile as gamers

* Kickstarter users are predominantly (62%) male.

* 50% are between 18 and 34, and 20% are between 34 to 44.

* Almost half (48%) are college educated. That’s against 30.4% of Americans aged over 25 having a college degree (Source: US Census Bureau, February 2012).

* 45% earn more than USD 50,000 a year.
