Are Video Game Sales better in September than August?



September 16, 2009 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: EA , TTWO , ATVI

Piper sees a come back in video game sales......hmm..really?  So many analysts are saying video games will start to see growth THIS MONTH....really?....uhm....hmm....

Tell ya what... Today is not a weekend.... It's a normal run of the mill week day....

Varchild will navigate at least 3 video game shops in and around Metro Detroit today and place his visits on a 1 to 10 scale.

1 =  I was the only one there....

10 =  OMG!!!!  I can't even get inside the game shop it's a frenzy!!  Nearly got knocked over!!

Why today?  Why now?

About 50% of the AAA titles have already released...or are on Pre-Order  Sales Promo Mode.

Stores are already prepping inventories for Christmas Sales.

T.V. Commercials on NFL and College Football games for all sorts of video games are popping up all over the place.

There is nothing to suggest I should enter a video game store at a random time....and be the only one inside.

Also....Varchild will sneakily determine if people are browsing...or buying..

Also... Varchild isn't going to Best Buy or Gamestop...... NOPE.. Those stores are out!

I'm looking for MOTHERS buying GAMES for the kids....   To do that.. I'm going to Big Box Stores like TARGET.




Let's see if the Analyst Expectations will be MET.....
