The analyst with the goofiest of names, Robert Higginbotham, believes that game sales have peaked for 2008. He doesn't feel like the upcoming releases can contend with the record setting first quarter sales of $4.2 billion.
"While the much anticipated release of GTA IV at the end of April is expected to produce record sales, and Wii Fit, slated for May, is also expected to be a blockbuster, the remainder of the year lacks any big releases, and comparisons get tougher throughout the year as we lap titles such as Halo 3 and Guitar Hero 3," mused Higginbotham.
Apparently, titles like Metal Gear Solid 4, Ninja Gaiden II, Gears of War 2, Resistance 2, and whatever Nintendo decides to release this holiday season aren't enough.
Let's prove him wrong and buy tons of games!
