These people are the ones who overwhelmingly bought DS and Wii.
We know what happened the last time a gaming company and system catered to them.

My sister and a lot of her friends play Mario, Mario Party, Donkey Kong, and pretty much all things Nintendo. My ex plays a ton of JRPG's, so do a lot of my female colleagues. My old roomate played Rainbow 6 Vegas 2, Soul Calibur, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, and N+
The perception that girls and guys have greatly different appeals I feel is walking a bit along the lines of sexist. Sure different things appeal to different people but my grandma for instance LOVES Law and Order, CSI, Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Scarface, The Last Samurai, The Bourne films, and the God Father. If she were a gamer, she'd probably play The God Father games, the Mafia games, LA Noire, Scarface, the Just Cause series, Sleeping Dogs and the Kane and Lynch series.
