    damn, im amped as hell for this topic. I’ve been thinking about this since 2007 or 2008. I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t that gaming was “dying” or “dead”, just changing a lot. During all these changes there has been a lot of false growth or misdirections. Things will stabilize. I’m just worried that my waning interest in modern day gaming might be permanent. Excited for next week!

    A lot of Sony news is expected today. Be prepared to chuck the stated topic and go into “Instant Analysis” mode.

    Oh, and the Wii U is tanking. 55,000 units in January in NA. Yikes.
