Does Owning Video Games Hurt School Performance?

One recent study published in the journal, Psychological Science,  came to the conclusion that “that video-game ownership may impair academic achievement for some boys in a manner that has real-world significance.”  However, at least one blogger on the Chicago Sun-Times site  feels like that the study was not structured in such a way to eliminate other variables which might have caused a decline school performance. The Chronicle of Higher Education comments on the study too.

Read a news release about the study.

One thing for sure, this discussion is probably just starting, with many more people planning to comment on the subject, and, also, probably planning more studies.
