People are sick of video games. I for one have decided not to buy my nephews or nieces ANY video games this year. And to be honest, they haven't asked for any! People get tired of sitting in front of their TV all day, even kids... My nieces and nephews are suddenly into BOARD GAMES: Yahtzee, Monopoly, Uno, etc. It's all trendiness. Kids get into other things for awhile and video games fade into the background. That's what's happening. So, whether THQ and the gang have growth this year or not, perhaps the analysts are seeing this change in the kid culture and wondering where future earnings will grow from.
Very insightful. You really have your pulse on the industry. Your analysis is thorough and unbiased. Yet you speak like a "common man". Keep it coming. I'm sure we could all profit from your trend spotting.
