CNBC is wondering
if slow sales for The Lost and the Damned
and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
are pointing to an overall slowdown for the series. The site points to analysts' estimates that only 1 million of those 13 million who bought GTA IV
picked up the first DLC for the game, and to the crummy 89,000 units
the DS title moved in March.
We're not sure we're on board with CNBC's theory just yet, though. The market for GTA IV
's DLC was already split because of its 360 exclusivity and Chinatown Wars
is a hardcore game on what's largely thought of as a casual system. What do you think?
