24. Re: More Big Picture Details Oct 12, 2012, 20:23 HorrorScope
PC sales were down like 2% for they year or so from what I read the other day. OMG, run to the hills! Collapse? Sensationalists. Then again what market of PC are we talking, servers, business desktops, home, enthusiast? I mean for us all that I guess matters is home/enthusiast. It was still hundreds of millions of units sold.

These percentages are things Wall Street can sweat. I don't think it relates to hardcore gaming all that much.

Consoles are down a WHOPPING 24%, now there should be your headline.

Here is the article: (Put both lines together)

"However, for the first time in nearly 11 years (according to Cnet), annual PC sales appear to be on the decline."

"iSuppli's numbers aren't particularly scary -- shipments are only down by 1.2 percent from this time last year"

"Manufacturers have shipped about 348.695 million PCs thus far, down from last year's 352.831 million."
