I don't think you ever read the report? It just says that Wii hardware sales are correlated to SMG sales. He says NOTHING about the gaming crashing, bombing, or sucking. He was just make a reference to the low wii sales.

Does anyone even read articles anyomre?

Compare the title of the report and the report itself.
In title SMG crashed, in report SMG sails are correlating with Wii sales. It is more than enough to be "Idiot of the month".

Dear god, Call of Duty 4 is the Next Halo or GTA in terms of being HIGHLY Overrated.
