EA CEO John Riccitiello has predicted that negative comps for the industry will continue until June.

The company boss said that retail was continuing to show wary behaviour to stocking games products, instead favouring other sectors.

US games sales dropped 17 percent year-over-year in March, down to $1.43 billion from $1.72 billion in March 2008.
