Analyst: Blame CoD Decline on PC/Wii

Following up on a recent report that suggests sales of Call of Duty; Modern Warfare 3 are trailing behind those of Call of Duty: Black Ops, Gamasutra has a statement from an analyst blaming this on the game's afterthought platforms, the PC and Wii (thanks Joao). Word is: "Cowen's Doug Creutz said in his latest report that while life-to-date Modern Warfare 3 retail sales are indeed down 4.6 percent year-over-year compared to Black Ops, sales of the game on the Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms are actually slightly up year-over-year. However, large declines in sales of the versions of the game for Nintendo Wii, handheld platforms and PC have driven the overall decline, he suggests."

PC retail sales...

What PC retail sales? Holy shit this guy is a disgrace to my profession, he didn't really study anything about what he's talking about, he's just trying to reassure investors that all is ok. Holy fuck, PC retail sales is non-existant to begin with. What a sad case of not doing any homework at all.

This may be part of the point, ASeven. NPD only measures retail sales. So this is all analysts have to work with, as they can't properly measure Steam sales.
So PC sales are down, which is in part due to PC retail sales as a whole being down.

But, again fitting the "we're both wrong" theory, the 360 and PS3 seem to be stronger than ever.



You won't admit that, though. Nope, you still see every tiny thing as being manipulated into your own little theory. Hell, now you're claiming to be an equity analyst.

Shame that if the 360 and PS3 is stronger than the decline is far more serious then. Then again you had to take a chance to throw more apologist crap. Not surprised. Hell, go read the articles on gamasutra that do show people are worried this is a decline and not a cycle. Oh but you won't because it would show you are pretty wrong.

And the point is, there is no PC retail sales anymore, they no longer have any relevancy to whatever numbers NPD throws. PC sales have long become digital, retail is only a tiny fraction of PC gaming sales overall.

Oh and I worked as an equity analyst. Try not to make assumptions about my life, ok?

Yup, workED. I can't imagine anyone paying you to make predictions.
