Varchild sees Year over Year Growth in Sep. for Video Game Sector



October 15, 2009 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: ATVI , EA

How many times has Varchild been wrong in the past 6 months on expecting Year over Year sales growth for Video Games?    6 times!!!!    6 times wrong!!!!

I always expect year over year sales growth.... Video Games = Awesome!!!

And I am not entirely convinced that analysts are viewing the Video Game Sector the correct way by declaring these ridiculous 29% sales declines....  Why????

Every NPD Group Report is missing the following Video Game Sales Related Revenue:

1)  DLCs      (Downloadable Video Game Content).  This means downloading a Superhero you otherwise wouldn't get to play in Marvel Ultimate Alliance I or II.

2)  Apple iPhone + Xbox Live + Playstation 3 Online + Wii Virtual Arcade =  TONS and TONS of video games extremely old and extremely new.... You can download Wolfenstein... The First One... You can download Pitfall II the Mayan Adventure...  You can download all sorts of stuff.....

And guess what?  None of the download spree going on is getting factored into NPD Video Game Sales reports near as I can tell.....

3)  Purchaseable Items for ITEM Purchasing MMORPGs like Dungeons and Dragons Online....

What this means is you don't pay a monthly subscription fee but have to spend real cash to buy a VORPAL SWORD for your lvl 80 Dragon Knight character you created.

I'd like to know if there's an increase in VORPAL SWORD purchases year over year....wouldn't you?

Despite 1 million downloads of a Call of Duty Map-Pack in 1 weekend.... We don't see that in the NPD Sales Figures.....much less their Top 10 Sold Video Games..... That is just retarded!

In all seriousness.....

I've visited 2 video game stores recently... 1 at Great Lakes Crossing.... The Traffic flow for shopping within game stores is HUGE!  *finally*

Now I have to fight to look at anything rather than entertain the store clerks with my worthless knowledge of Video Game Titles that have a VORPAL SWORD in them, who are bored out of their minds.

Gamers are shopping again...  Video Games are not dead as a past time....   50+% YOUTHlings out of a job and somehow that ain't stopping them from getting their FIX on.
