Gaming Industry Suffers

mario 385 Gaming Industry Suffers 

Bad news for the video game industry.

NPD Group says sales of video game hardware, software and accessories were off 8 percent last month. And the problems seem to run nearly across the board. Game hardware sales tumbled 19 percent, software sales were off 5 percent — while accessories showed a slight increase. Driving the rise in the accessories category was Sony’s Move motion controller. When it comes to systems, fewer people bought the Nintendo Wii and Sony PlayStation 3 consoles. Only Microsoft’s Xbox 360 saw sales last month rise over last year’s figures
