    Not surprised software sales are down,

    Most of the decline is not due to lack of demand, but rather a shift to digital sales that don't show up in the report. Virtually all games can be downloaded directly to your PC and consoles now and fewer people are buying the hard copies. That combined with the fact that no new console deals or upgrades have been released makes it a certainty that sales will be seen as lower. I actually think a 25% decline is less than what should have been expected given the huge transition to digital.
