May NPDCourtesy of the Qt3 forums:
Also, here's some entirely discouraging news from NPD's Anita Frazier:
“This month's story really is about a light new release schedule as compared to last year. There were 42 new SKU’s introduced in May as compared to 58 last May, and 72 in 2009.”
That's a reduction of over 40%, and I don't think it's a one-month story. That's just part of the suicidal "only release AAA games" strategy that almost every major publisher is following now, a strategy which, for most of them, will end in ruin.
