Video Games not feeling slumping economy (yet)

Print Friendly

TechFlash wrote quite an interesting article about how the video game industry (particularly “casual games”) is not yet feeling the pinch of our current economic recession. Mainly slamming teens and young adults for not putting away savings and preparing for their future, the article suggests that this coming holiday season, when parents are forced to shell out $60 a copy for games, that might be the first time that the industry feels the effects of the closed wallets of the populous.

Still, the article received some positive feedback from developers in the casual games market. The people who make free web-browser based games or those inexpensive games you find on Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network, like Popcap Games and Big Fish Games, are reporting that business is booming!
