It's funny how video game industry is having it's best month in years while Hollywood and movie business is facing it's darkest days (Golden Compass, Beowulf, Fred Claus and all other blockbusters failing to meet expectations).
Hope both industries get better and see more success. Games and movies FTW!

Well people are more forgiving with crazy costs to video games then they are with movie tickets now-a-days. Why spend ~40 bucks going to the theaters when you can wait for it to come out on whatever format you want and watch it in the comfort of your already theater like home set up. Plus you can pause it for those bathroom breaks.

Crazy amount of money though for the industry.

If you can wait a month or two on a movie, you can watch it for about 2 bucks. I very rarely pay full price for a movie unless I just really want to see it on day one.

As far as games go, seems as though things are going as usual here in the US.
