If you thought electronic retailers were safe during this economic recession, Best Buy announced their December 2008 sales figures. And it’s not good. Sales dropped 6.5%, bringing in $7.5 billion in revenue for the month of December 2008. In comparison, third quarter sales were down 77%. We won’t know how bad Best Buy did in the forth quarter until March 2009.
I wouldn’t be surprise if video games are also affected by the recession.
