Absolutely. They don't want twentysomething gamers who are going to be jaded after a while and more stingy with their income on account of living on their own income). They want kids who are still impressionable and have parents that buy them game consoles and games for Christmas, their birthdays, and just on impulse when their kids wear their willpower thin.

Average age of currently active console game purchaser: A lot younger.
Take a look at the patrons of your local Gamestop, EB, or whaterver. Their average age is most definitely not 31.
