WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- Move over guys because a new report says women are coming on strong when it comes to playing video games.

The study shows that nearly 45 percent of adult women are gamers, 46j percent of women are the most frequent video game buyers.

It's a sharp contrast because most games are marketed toward males. 

Experts point to greater diversity, more female characters and greater customization of video games as to the reason why more women play them.
