CNBC ponders a Grand Theft Auto slowdown

CNBC is wondering if slow sales for The Lost and the Damned and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars are pointing to an overall slowdown for the series. The site points to analysts’ estimates that only 1 million of those 13 million who bought GTA IV picked up the first DLC for the game, and to the crummy 89,000 units the DS title moved in March.

We’re not on board with CNBC’s theory because the market for GTA IV‘s DLC was already split because of its 360 exclusivity and Chinatown Wars is a hardcore game on what’s largely thought of as a casual system. Plus many of DS owners are not into violent video games. Click Here to see the article. What do you think? Comment below.
