Games sales plummet

SALES OF computer games have continued to spiral into an abyss of doom and destruction which can only be made any worse if the universe collapses in on itself [Cheer up for God’s sake. Ed].

For the seventh month in a row, sales of video games fell by eight percent. In March, retailers managed to flog only $499 million dollars of software in the US.

Hardware sales fell more than 31 percent to just $220 million and Vole’s Xbox 360 netted more than $96 million of that.

The most popular game in March was the RPG Kingdom Hearts II for the PS2. Xbox 360 titles Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter was the second-best seller, followed by The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Analysts are predicting that things are going to get worse, probably until Nintendo or Sony gets their act together and release some gear.
