Sure everyone has eyes on Nintendo because of spectacular decisions but EA, Sega, Sony among other are also in trouble, is this because we're on the end of a cycle or because gamers habits are changing greatly ?

Bad trends started by this generation are taking a toll on the gaming industry.
If I were stuck on an island with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Modern Warfare 2, I would play Super Mario Galaxy 2 first. People who agree: 224

But what could these trends be ? social gaming, apple model market, piracy ?

Because gaming on things like iPhones is becoming the next big thing, presumably.

combination of piracy, phone gaming(which is worthless) and the ecomnomy in most the world being in bad shape.

Markets change. Companies that fail to adapt get left behind.

I've passed on buying a lot of different games because they seemed like half the game for $60 then you're bled for the rest of it as dlc at $10 a pop. That's certainly a bad trend that was set by this console generation.

Regardless of higher development costs, it the consumer feels ripped off or squeezed when they actually do buy a game, their not going to buy as often.
If Platinum was HAND drawn, she'd be on paper, fool. This is a video game. They just made her on screen, no "drawing" involved -Delano7 on BlazBlue

because every one is buying the same game each year and if you dont like this years version of EA FPS, Microsoft FPS , Sony FPS, Activision FPS or Valve FPS you have...
nothing really,everything else that's a "must buy" is on a 1 1/2 to 2 year cycle such as Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed or Bioshock


from what i can tell Nintendo gets hit the hardest for "making the same game" but does it the least .
