    That 25% decline for pc games isn't good at all,like publishers and developers need any more reason to get out of that market

    And vhs rocks dude I still have a lot of tapes and even watch a few sometimes lol for old times sake

    Yeah, the 25% decline is bad for PC sales, let's hope there was a 35% increase in DD sales.

    VHS was great in the day, i had to bin all mine though, take up too much space.

    I've not seen a shop sell VHS in years, we still have a VHS player in all 3 bedrooms in our house and on the main TV downstairs.

    Those figures likely don't take digital sales into account, as steam doesn't report their figures.

    I would have expected sales to fall or rise only very slowly, given the year, though.

    I'm pretty sure Steam and other Digital distribution is slowly becoming the norm. I haven't bought a game from a store in a long time. I like Steam too much :p

    If you look at PC games on their own then sales actually went up last year.
