2008 split console first, PC later: analyst

By Patrick Garratt, Wednesday, 30 January 2008 22:17 GMT

Lazard Capital Markets’ Colin Sebastian reckons console gaming’s going to be the hot story of the first half of 2008 thanks to GTA IV, MGS 4 and DMC 4, whereas PC titles will be the talk of the back half of the year, with the launch of WoW: Wrath of the Lich King, Spore and Starcraft II.

His view reinforces Mike Hickey’s view yesterday that Will Wright’s Spore is likely to move towards the back of the year. EA’s issuing figures for its third quarter tomorrow, so we may hear something on that then.
