It's cold out. Gaming weather to be sure. Yet January is pretty much dry. I still remember picking up Bayonetta and Darksiders in January 2010 which was great. The last two years though? Nothing. A publishing void.
But look at what happens February to May. High profile releases are almost as dense and crowded as during the September to November holiday retail season. I don't quite get it. Don't people usually go out on a shopping binge on January sales? Might just as well pick-up that hot new game too.
Anybody got a clue why January is being shunned by publishers? Like EA's gonna publish SSX and ME3 within a week? Why not place one of these games mid-January with literally no competition what-so-ever?
