Lately the sales of video games hasn’t been looking good, in fact NDP group has said that sales are actually down 34%. You might be wondering what is the cause of this problem? The answer is simple really, there hasn’t been any major launches in a while, the only game I can remember that I’ve bought recently are the latest Final Fantasy and Minecraft.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was the month’s best-selling title, selling millions of copies. Others following the game were Just Dance 3, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and NBA 2K12. How many of these so called best-selling titles do I own? Only one actually and that’s Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, other than that those other four really didn’t interest me.
I believe this problem will easily be solved during March, and that’s because of Mass Effect 3. Any person who’s even entitled themselves to be a gamer has played the Mass Effect series, the second game, Mass Effect 2 in fact won game of the year just last year. So without a doubt I can say that this game is going to sell like crazy, but that’s not all. There’s also the release of Diablo 3, it’s confirmed it’ll be released early 2012 and I know many people who’ve already got the game pre-ordered.
