Just to be clear again my move to get out is to wait for better weather. A number of developers, publishers, retail companies are obviously hurting bad from lack of consumer spending.
The Shorts will continue to paint this as a Gamestop story while the reality that struck me most about the NPD March report is that even adding Digital sales and subscription fees and social gaming, we still had a massive double digit drop in sales.
This is a global wide sales slowdown for everyone across the board.
Ninja Gaiden 3 and Resident Evil OCW were letdowns in terms of quality.
You have to ask yourselves right now about what happens to Retailers when we have Game Developers financially strapped so bad that it shows up in the poor quality of products they produce.
Thank you. It's all you can do to keep it light hearted. Varchild is a pretty smart cookie so his wavering does make me nervous. I'm still in it because I was too stupid to get out of it years ago. I too keep waiting for the short squeeze, followed by a takeover with a 35% premium. That would be true "rapture".
What he usually does is give the year to year price from exactly a year ago to the day and boast about how if you had bought one year ago you'd be sitting pretty now. We need one of those special yearly price points right about now.
