Germans invade Second Life

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Second Life has become the David Hasselhoff of internet gaming.

A study released today by digital census takers comScore shows that Germans make up 16 per cent of Sadville residents, making them the largest country of origin in the "game."

Between January and March, a 70 per cent population explosion of Deutschlanders placed them above US residents, the former population leader, by approximately 2,000 people.

In March, about 1.3 million people logged into Second Life, according to comScore. Of those people, 209k were German, 207k were from the US, 167k were in the Asia Pacific and 104k were from France.

The UK lags behind with a mere 72,000 redcoats (6 per cent) logging into the virtual world. (But honestly, it's a bit like coming in last place at a no-hands-allowed pie eating contest; No dignity lost there.)

The total Sadville population increased by 46 per cent from January to March. Sixty one per cent hailed from Europe, and 19 per cent from North America.

Sixty one per cent of residents also identified themselves as male while 39 per cent said they were female. (Right. I've fallen for that old chestnut before.) And now I've got a language barrier I've got to compete against? ®
