recession hits video games

OK for many game companies it is - game over. The economic recession has hit game stop hard. Gamestop profit is down 32% as it post a disappointing second quarter earnings. Lets face it, games win people over in good times, but when the choice is food or playing a game, it is game over.

Blowing up aliens on some faraway planet may seem like fun, but not when the cost is going hungry for days at a time. People can now download most games off the internet for free, and there are lots of low cost offers out there.
