It's like another editor who wrote how badly the Wii U is going to become because of the power brick ac adapter cord, I really wonder sometimes on the people who hire these fools that write this garbage.

The article was just ridiculous in my opinion. I stopped reading as soon as it said it was only gaming affected and not cable, movies, Music, social, or mobile games. NO S*%$ sherlock. Why would these much cheaper things not be affected by the recession as much as video games? They should be on equal footing shouldn't they? Of course if someone can't drop 60 dollars on a new game then they shouldnt be able to buy a 10 dollar music album or a .99 cent social game right?

Because games aren't selling, and games are where the industry makes its money.

Everyone dreams of being the guy that says "media format x died, and I predicted it."

Basically, this dude needs to stop acting like Al Gore.

It is projected, 3.6 million is what Patcher has guesstimated. There have not been real numbers that I know of.

People are waiting in back logs to get the Wii U, the new systems from PS and MS are coming next year and will sell just as good. How can you say it is dying?

Your use of the word farrier leads me to believe you are highly educated and thus I fear you.

Well, in practical economic terms, industries "die" not because they go away completely, but because they become marginalized and largely irrelevant compared to their competition.

I mean, the horseshoeing industry is "dead" but it's not like you can't find a farrier if you look in the yellow pages. The movie theater industry is largely dead because television is so much bigger business. Arcades are "dead" not because you can't find one anywhere, but because they bring in so much less money than other gaming alternatives.

So I don't think it's unreasonable to say that console gaming is dying, but that doesn't mean it's going away.

I just need the proof so if anyone asks me I can show the facts.

3.6 million preorders for the U.... strange numbers for something that is dying.

He probably just bought Apple's 16th I-Pad then played Angry Birds re-skin 70,000 and found it so amazing that he just had to write about it. Unqualified, moronic and flat out inept prediction.
