    Interesting article with quite a few good points. There are still a few things that stand out and I honestly expected them to be mentioned regarding drops in sales and the likes:

    Odd that this was mentioned, but there isn't a word about PSV+PSP sales so far this year compared to last year (yes the PSV wasn't out last year during the time, but neither was the 3DS for the most of it). PSV sales actually go above the PSP sales of 2011. The DS and PSP sales compared to this year aren't that surprising, since both of them have a new console possible of playing previous gen games :rolleyes:

    Also: Why Patcher?

    EDIT: :ninja: 'd

    again, not to criticize to make it look bad but i cant say this is news and its too much at once.

    then again, this data shows tht data cannot be trusted

    Nice article, completely unbiased (unlike SOME I've read recently) and an overall interesting read. He makes some very good points and I agree that Microsoft and Sony are going to have to make a price cut this year is they wish for Xbox 360 and PS3 sales to continue to rise.

    Thanks for the share.

    Don't hardware sales go down because people already own them :?
