Wall Street City, a website whose domino in the big watch-the-internet-tumble-one-page-at-a-time festival has yet to tip, has “broken the story” that video games have come a long way since Donkey Kong.
And we wonder why the dot.com house of cards has fallen down. You can read the article for yourself but to summarize, “Hey video games are like, way cool. I can’t wait to buy a new console plus game boy is like all radical and stuff. We think XBox will sux because we hate Microsoft but beyond that we have little in the way of factual information to back that opinion up.”
The article goes on to promise more coverage of the video game industry as it relates to Wall Street. To prove it, they included a spread sheet of popular video game stocks and the projected changes over the next five years. According to Wall Street City, Electronic Arts will see a five year growth of 25% – but given that they just now discovered that Donkey Kong is no longer “state of the art”, they may not be aware of the recent “downsizing” of Origin Systems, Kesmai Studios, and a few other less popular tendrils of the EA hydra. Be sure to check back in a year or so when they cover it.
