Women's relation to online games

On a near-global scale, women are more likely than men to play online games, with Asia being the one exception.

"Among Internet households in North America, 52% of women play online games each month compared with 39% of men, according to this international study. Similar gaps regarding online gaming exist among Internet households in Europe, 39% of women and 28% of men, and in Australia, 53% of women and 27% of men. Only in Asia were these gaming activities equal between women and men at 49% and 50%, respectively."

Interesting, isn't it? What culd be the reason for this? Is it because of higher gender equality in the so-called Western world, compared to Asia, where women are still treated a bit less equal or is it simply, because women are smarter and have better things to do than playing online games?
