Video Game Sales

A new article reveals that music is not alone in dwindling sales. Video game sales are dropping quite a bit this year. Sales for this month compared to last year are down 16% and are down 14% year to date. This could be relating to the poor economy as many industries are down especially in the leisure department. Relating to the music industry, video games have become one of the more prominent sources for sync licensing. Not only are the soundtracks for these games fairly large, they also highlight the artists and songs, hopefully igniting an interest for the gamer to go and purchase the song. Just more dismal news in the music industry.
