I have to also add that this year isnt over yet with most new releases in the fall. Those numbers are bound to be driven up by the end of the year. This year all the great games are not coming until the fall so those number will go up significanlty.

I agree with Lobo about the "Cost" of a game vs the movies. I would much rather spend $50 bucks on a game that's going to give me weeks and months of enjoyment, vs spending that much in something that's going to give me a fraction of the enjoyment. That's less than your average monthly cost of Satellite or cable tv.

I also, think that they should really slow down on the "New". New consoles, new versions... blah blah. I don't want to spend a couple hundred dollars one day just to be told that it's out of date the next. I do think that's one reason I primarily stick to PC games. When there's an upgrade, you just download the patch. End of story. lol

I highly doubt they are doing poor....the systems are still selling and they are OLD come on 360 ps3 and wii are up in age....Games are $$$ I will say that and can't afford to get them as often...and lots sound good til they come out and reviews slam them...if they charge so much they need to rock my socks or not into it as much!

14 year I have waited for duke nukem.....better be worth it! and the new sonic generations looks sweet!

Thats kind of strange that you say that about the gaming industry being in bad shape. I heard a report that they were actually doing good this year. Nintendo best selling portable every the Nintendo 3DS broker records, Call of Duty black ops broke huge records and games give more entertainment time then a movie. You go to the movies with your family and your close to spending the same amount for just 1.5 hour average.

I agree, Tema.
I know that all companies have to make a profit but they are pricing themselves out of sales. Game development isn't cheap but how many more games would people be tempted to buy if they were priced $5 less? People are cutting out the unnecessary things in life just to make ends meet these days and the entertainment industry needs to realize that their games aren't a "must have" right now...people will wait until things turn around and/or the prices drop.

I don't know about quality of games coming out either with all the sequels but then it took 14 years for the Duke Nukem to come out and it is getting blasted in the reviews. I'm one of those that is opting to not get new stuff right now due to economics and school so I just really don't know about the good, bad and ugly out there. LOL

Call me cheap but I have to say that the games are just to high and ppl just don't have the money anymore to buy like before...The economy is still going thru some rough patches and the gaming industry is going to feel it just like all other companies out here....try lowering the price of the games and then stop making systems every 2 yrs....and stop making sequels every 6 months to a year

If You're tired or starting over stop giving up
