Seattle top Microsoft gaming city

Seattle was named top video-gaming city in the United States Microsoft and Sperling's BestPlaces announced Tuesday.

The Pacific Northwest city topped the bill followed by Minneapolis-St. Paul, Atlanta, Detroit and Phoenix-Mesa to round out the top five for both console and Microsoft Windows-based PC gaming based on the survey analyzing consumer behaviors in the gaming industry.

Consoles include Xbox 360, Xbox, Playstation 2 and GameCube.

Washington, D.C., placed sixth, Boston eighth, Dallas twelfth, and New York fifteenth.

"The large amount of games played on Xbox Live and the high number of video games owned put Seattle at the top of list, but clearly the survey confirms that games are sweeping the U.S.," said Bert Sperling, founder of Sperling's BestPlaces, which was commissioned to perform the study.
