So I was reading my local newspaper this morning and there was an article about a possible video game recession. I was tickled pink not because of the news it contained but they were saying something besides "Video Games are the Devil!". Anyway, the article goes on to say that there was a "big" recession back in 2001 for video games sales. Which I don't really remember. And goes on to say that there will be a big game recession in '08 and that it will actually hurt the games industry. Forcing developers to be more choosy with which games they release and would pretty much destroy indie games. Because they must assume that it costs butt-loads of money to put a game on XBLA. Anyway, chalk another bit of stoopid-a-teee up small town newspapers.
