Same guy, EEDAR’s Jesse Divnich said a couple of months ago that the reason the PS3 had failed up to this point wasn't because of the higher price point but instead because of failed marketing.

Apparently, no one pointed out the Mr. Divnich the fact that the PS3 is the third fastest selling console in history and has outsold the Xbox 360 since it launched worldwide.

If he can't be bothered to look at actual sales figures before running his mouth about make believe problems, what is the chance that he's thought this issue through?

Not "but" much stock. That's what I get for posting full of holiday cheer. :)

If anybody is going to hop out of gaming it's the Wii casuals (Grandmas and such).

Too bad the newsitem has no details as to what "factors" cause digital distribution to make a dent in video game numbers.

I think the opposite is going on, a gigantic growth in digital game sales that no company seems to be able to track as of yet.

Maybe Steam, D2D, GOG, EA and soon Gamestop can make a deal with the NPD and this Electronic Entertainment Design and Research to create some clarity.

Maybe the casual games, but I don't think ANYBODY who visits N4G cares about the type of games that we may or may not be missing out on next year :/
