I agree with some points and glad he didn't start putting up NPD numbers or I would have stopped reading. PC gaming sales has taken form in Digital Distribution and nobody knows exactly how much revenue is being pulled in by Steam and Direct2Drive. My guess is there is a good reason these numbers aren't being released.

I've been looking into upgrades myself but at the moment it seems like the pc has been gettin ports of console games that run just fine on a 3870 or 8800. So now is not the time for an upgrade.

Though I don't know if i'll be able to resist the hd4870 at $150 later this week.

The only people who really like World of Warcraft's success are people who play nothing but World of Warcraft.
