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.
