Um they are comparing it to last July. So its a fair comparion, and games sales have been absolutely terrible this year.

TheFinalEpisode1779d ago

Yeah and no good games have come out this year IMO. Every game I've bought this year came out last year but I'm just catching up. By this time last year I had already bought 10 games, this year only 4. 2013 is already looking better than 2011 and 2012.

There have been few games worth buying this year. I typically buy 12-16 games per year, I think I've only bought 3 so far this year.

MostJadedGamer1778d ago

There are very few games worth buying every year. So there is nothing unusual about this year.

nukeitall1779d ago

I can only remember buying ME3, and then mostly cheap budget games and even then, that has been few and far between.

It's July and this generation is coming to a close.

Anyone who is surprised is a major dingus.

July, historically the absolute best month every year with regard to AAA releases.


edit: oh. YOY. Still, with all the huge games set to release in the next couple months, I'm not surprised people are holding out.

Don't think its as bad as it seems if you notice the keywords "physical" and "retail"
