Analyst blames multiplayer gaming for US sales decline

By Tamoor Hussain @ CVG

Outspoken industry analyst Michael Pachter has revealed why he thinks US software sales have dipped 14 per cent - the fourth consecutive month that sales have declined.

Pachter attributes some of the decline to the purchase of "clearance" games and Nintendo bundling games in with their hardware.

However the majority of the blame is attributed to multiplayer gaming. He argues that the replay value of titles such as Halo 3 and Call of Duty are deterring players from purchasing more games - and even goes so far as encouraging Activision to charge consumers extra to play CoD online.
