Video Game Sales Down 11%

An eleven percent slide is worrisome but, considering all of this year's biggest selling titles hit the shelves after these numbers were tallied, I think the fourth quarter will more than make up for it.

"Increases in sales from some of these other monetization methods, and full game and add-on digital downloads in particular, only partially offset the decline seen in the new physical retail channel."
