EA: Retails Sales to Decline 11% This Year

Speaking at a UBS Media investor conference in New York today, EA CEO John Riccitiello forecast an 11% decline in boxed goods sales in the United States and Western Europe this year compared with last year. Riccitiello added a comment supporting the contention of many who claim that retail declines just represent a shift to digital distribution: "That packaged goods thing is very big deal. Digital has more than made up for it, but the packaged business has been a real substantial challenge."

In one topic this board will say "marketing is a waste of money, make good games and they'll sell, stupid!"

In another topic this board will say "MW2 is still selling bazillions of copies? That game sucks, people are just buying it based on marketing!"

Somehow they miss the correlation between their statements.

Don't ask for Blue's News negativity to make sense, it just IS.
