I think the cost of games needs to come down.
I dont know how many Millions some of them cost to make, but look at avg cost of games

30-45

A good game could shift 3-4million copies.

now do the maths.

The growth could easily be releated to the fact that a Console is not only a childs toy anymore.

it's an ever expanding marked.

Hi!

I agree that Console games are overpriced. But if they sell 3-4 Million copies per title, why should they cut down the price ? Appearently people will still buy the games... (BTW: Where did you get that 3-4 Million number from... I think it is ways too high !!! Console games sell good, but I would be surprised to hear they'd sell THAT good)
