Abridged from my formal blog, and adapted from forum posts around the game industry:
The gaming industry is sort of in a slump. A combination of factors are coming into play. More games are being purchased than ever before, since more people are playing more games than ever previously. However, the industry has become over saturated with games. Other factors include the inceasing prices of distribution to stores, lower prices of online stores like Steam, and expensive consoles yiedling diminished returns per principal cost increase.
Right now, WoTC has basically got their portion of cheese in the wedge of the game industry. They own the best selling card trading game and the best selling table top rpg. What more can they do to keep their cheese?
