I buy 95% of my games on Amazon.

The prices are good, the selection is great, and it's convenient.

Edit: Not sure if this includes Amazon, or if it is just pertaining to storefront locations (i.e Gamestop)

I don't think they include online retailers or Walmart. I think I read a few year back they make up or it with an algorithm.

"Not sure if this includes Amazon"

It does.

This industry is total bomba,almost every game except top few has flopped.
25% down from already crappy figures,lol

EA can really only sell Sports games. BF sells itself, Command and Conquer as well. Their PR is horrendous. They could have sold their fans on the changes to Dead Space but they treated them like second class citizens and now they're paying the price. Good to see. Please DICE, break free!!!

I hope this mean we get Sly Cooper 5 for Ps4 cause this sold pretty well for a game that wasnt advertised and was probably pretty low budget.

Sales figures i found on Neogaf
50k for Ninokuni which out sold DMC for both 360 and ps3(DMC is a BOMBA) :D
MGRR 65% PS3 but sold only 1/3 of Deadspace 3(stupid dudebro games):(
EOS4 sold 15k(end of the month release)
Ninja gaiden sigma 2 plus 3k(end of the month release)

I've been buying more and more games online, I bought Gears Judgment from the Microsoft Store because they threw in a free 1600 point card, which is the exact amount of the Gears Judgment Season Pass.

Newegg had the game for $39.99, a lot of online places offer great deals, that combined with a console generation that just wont end, leads to loss YOY, which isn't surprising, you cant always gain, eventually you top out.

$325 millions in Digital sales, with that counted it's not really that bad

I don't think the industry is declining it's just changing
