The numbers at the start of the article for 2013 do not match the ones at the end. Seems like you took pre-adjustment data for one, and post for the other. sloppy

So is this when people actually start to accept what I have been saying since January. Both PS3 and 360 down by 30% plus this year.

Even with two big consoles launches, year-to-year overall business seems to have decreased. The total number of consoles sold is way lower. Videogame companies are really struggling in bringing new consumers to it.

1. PS4/XBO are largely sold out, 2. Most people don't upgrade consoles until about 2 years after release. The market fluctuates, it's not the developers stuggling to bring new consumers in.
