Analyst Thinks Grand Theft Auto V And Next-Gen Could Save 2013 Software Sales

VentureBeat: ''Video game software sales have fallen in year-over-year comparisons for nearly every month of 2013. Only March showed any increase in sales.

June was no better as software sales dipped 10 percent year-over-year.

As gloomy as these figures appear, Cowen & Company analyst Doug Creutz says June software actually performed better than expected.'' (Doug Creutz, Grand Theft Auto V, Industry, Next-Gen, PS3, Xbox 360)

Too bad the promo material is all doctored and the game gonna look like crap on ps3 and x360.

Really looking forward to the bought reviews hailing it for the "amazing graphics" and using only promo material in said reviews

I see you guys started talking about COD. Well there is one thing I can say, I don't expect sales of this years COD to be any different.

COD won't fall just yet. People are in love with the formula, and it has become an addiction to spend time with it. Only Battlefield could save those people, but I'm not sure yet.

Sounds silly, but is true, people have to play something, other games don't cut it for them (Specifically - multiplayer playtime amount each COD can give), COD is the thing they will stick to.
