"a failing PC market"

lolno, so suddenly a rise in sales is the market failing? Someone needs to have a lesson in logic 101 here.

"but in the short term they provide less revenue."

That's the problem with buisiness today, people think short term profit and not long term profit.

I don't see any industry decline, in fact things being cheaper would help it as people could buy more and you can nickle and dime them that way, like gas stations: they make more money from pop and candy than gas yet pop and candy (unforturnately) is far cheaper than the gas.

5 years seems a bit long. I guess if the economy stays bad, the publishers keep assaulting the gamers wallets (which i fear will cause an actual collapse rather than a down turn), motion controls all tank, apple continues to water down portable gaming and other companies follow and new hardware comes out in 2013. I could see any of these things causing the market to stumble till 2015.
