Differences for being an Game Elite and Light Gamer

I got this from this site that the types of gamers can now be divided into a “game elite” and “light gamers”. They were identified by veteran game designer Masanobu Endo, known for such titles as Druaga (both game and anime) and director of “Game Studio” and the “Digital Games Research Association Japan,” in a presentation he made to audiences at the recent CEDEC 2010.

Game Elite:

Remembers pleasures of pixel perfect control
Likes high risk/high return trade offs
If a PC gamer, likes FPS and RTS, also MMO
Prefers Xbox 360 for consoles
Prefers PSP for handhelds
Often single
Lacks endurance for Wii sports games
Light Gamer:

Often young
Has little time for games
Email is more important to them than games
Won’t install

If you ask me what type of gamer i am, that would be a Game Elite, Since I like playing games much even I'm at work hehe. Anyway it up to who decide to be a Game elite or Light Gamer or not a gamer at all.
