Video game sales are down for the month of June, continueing a trend of the last several months it seems.

Not very surprising considering the current economic woes that are facing so many people everywhere.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if game sales start picking up the closer we get to the holiday season. People of all ages love giving and receiving video games for Christmas presents. :yes:

Yup, people are skipping a lot of the "fluff" games. Those who do buy are sticking to the popular, big name titles to get the best value. A lot of people are spending on other things now too - summer movies, vacations, and the like. It will pick up around the holiday season and early parts of next year, though.

I hope we don't get a repeat of the gaming industry crash from 1983!

I doubt we're getting close to another crash. One of the big problems back in 1983 was overproduction of games. I think gaming companies have learned their lessons from that quite well.
