November Game Sales and Black Ops Soar

Industry analysts Anita Frazier of NPD announces record sales figures for the month of November, as report in this CNET article, where they say the $2.99 billion November 2010 take is up 8 percent from $2.76 billion a year earlier, and about $30 million more than the previous record November in 2008. They break down the figures a bit, and note along the way that Call of Duty: Black Ops sold 8.7 million units in the less than a month following the release of the military shooter sequel, which makes it the seventh best-selling game of all time.

Making an average 10hour long game = $2,000,000/year for 3 years.
Cost of an average game to the end user: $60.
Mowing an average 50ft by 50ft lawn once a week = $10/week for 6 weeks.
Raking leaves on a 50ft by 50ft lawn once a week = $10/week for 6 weeks.

Do the math...games are cheap to the end user. Find some lawns to mow or rake and let those of us that like to work and play do it without sad remarks from the Lazy Lizards.



I know I should ignore the troll, as you all have done so admirably...but WTF does that have to do with the price of tea in China?

By your logic, the average cost of milk is $3.50 a gallon, therefore I should be happy to pay an extra $10,000 for a car.

The issue at hand is COD games costing more than the generally established price point of a game, yet having fewer features. If you regularly pay $10 for a movie ticket, yet a particular new release cost $15 but was only 45 minutes long, you'd probably not be happy.

Or rather, based on your comment, you'd not only be happy, but tell anyone who complained about it to get a job. PT Barnum would have @#$%ing loved you, man.
