We also believe that the tremendous success of online social gaming will further change the dynamics of the video game industry going forward. We believe that the social gaming market is well positioned for continued growth, primarily attributable to its casual, social and interactive environment compared to the more conventional platforms.

However, the economic slowdown has taken its toll. Consumer spending remains weak to date and the lack of new game releases has not helped.
