Video Game Sales Down In December

Just when I thought the video game industry was thriving with AAA titles such as Batman: Arkham City, Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3 and Zelda: Skyward Sword for the Christmas season, CBS has reported  video game sales were down by 21% for December compared to 2010.  The industry is blaming the old consoles for the declining sales.  They’re probably right, everybody that wanted a console, whether it’s a PS3, Xbox 360 or a WII probably has one by now.  The systems are affordable that you can even have all three consoles for a cheap price…hint Craigslist.

What I don’t get is that software sales were also down by 14%.  The titles I mentioned got good to great reviews but I guess the gamers are tired of sequels.  Maybe this will motivate developers to create more innovative games.  Zelda: Skyward Sword is supposedly one of the best title in the franchise yet it only sold 140k copies in its first week.
