Everyone is wrong about Tablet & Smartphone gaming eating into traditional Video Game Industry sales. It's Group-Think at its worst. The truth is Tablet & Smart-Phones have increased the Game Industry Pie, and is nearly mutually exclusive from high-end dedicated console gaming. ATVI's biz is moving forward while the stock has been pummeled. At the beginning of the new console era is the perfect time to buy ATVI.

I completely agree, I'm a dedicated console gamer and so are a lot people I know. Console gamers are loyal to their franchise (Gears of war,Halo,etc) or company (Activison,Bethesda,etc). Most will buy every big release. And most don't give tablet gaming a second thought. It's two completely different markets.

Thank God for sanity! That's the exact point: the quality of gaming on a tablet is doctors office level whereas gaming with your friends or online in a serious fashion just cannot be replicated with a tablet. They're such different markets. Good call!
