Football games were much better when 2K sports had a competing title, now it's just a roster update & a few little updates each year & EA just rakes in the cash because all the sheep buy this recycled game every year.
Most video game reviews only give Madden an average score.
I haven't bought this game in years & won't until they actually give me something new!
Video games have outsold music for years & they are also outselling movies.
Obviously quality has nothing to do with it!
You want to see big sellers wait till Halo 3 & Gran Turismo 5 come out (Gran Turismo 4 sold almost 9 million copies!), they will sell millions of copies as well as hundreds of thousands of consoles.
The Halo 3 pre orders are already at 1.5 million & is still a month from it's release date
In case you didn't know the Video game market is HUGE!
Yeah, I do know the video game market is huge. My stepson was on his PSP until it got stolen in high school. I have to admit, I was impressed with all it could do. However, until his grades get better, no more PSP. I hade NO idea it would have that kind of impact on him.
His best friend has an X - Box 360. I told him, that is what he should have let me get him for Christmas. But, he changed his mind. Now, he is at his friends house playing X- box.
As far as the video game market, I just don`t follow it that much. So, thus my lack of info on the market place.
