PSM3 editor argues that Pro Evo Soccer is '10p per hour of fun'...
Following the earlier news that revenue from videogames continues to outstrip revenue from DVD and Blu-ray movies, with the gap expected to widen in 2009, we wondered aloud about the 'value' of spending £30 to £40 on a videogame, compared with spending £10 to £20 on a new DVD or Blu-ray?
Who is getting the better deal here? The gamer or the home cinema enthusiast?
"As the Gfk figures relate to revenue, it's not surprising to hear that game sales are forecast to trump DVDs and BD," argues Steve May, Editor of Home Cinema Choice magazine.
"Unlike movies, games software continues to hold its retail value. People still seem prepared to pay big bucks for hot titles, even despite the credit crunch. That's not the case with movies," adds May.
