Richard Bailey of TheKoalition writes:
For as far back as I could remember, I’ve always had a deeply profound love for video games.

Casuals are not a long time loyal consumer base.

Nintendo learned this the hard way.

Core gamers are the consumers that show long term support of their favorite brands.
Its the same with any other consumer market.

Sony has always known this.

I disagree, I own a lot of street fighter... I wouldn't say I'm "casual core" (I play a lot of other games), I've owned coin-op machines and almost every version across all consoles to date. My choice in game has nothing to do with it, my hours of play (which I would hate to have added up) might.
