Video game hardware and software sales went up 34 percent for February. According to the AP story, it's higher than analysts expected.
But it's no surprise to me. Television has been uber yawn lately because of the writer's strike, so more people rely on video games for entertainment. Then there's the hot genre of games like Wii Sports, Guitar Hero and Rock Band that become great for party entertainment for people who aren't big video-game players.
Have your video game playing or spending habits changed? Have you signed up for GameFly, which is like Netflix for video games? I know I've been playing more than in years past, and I'm dying to get Rock Band for my next party.
