Wal-Mart declared 'king' of videogame sales


IGN, the site that notes squids aren't animals, announced the following data point from its "Are You Game?" survey of 2,000 gamers:

Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, is also king when it comes to videogame sales.

To prove it, they've linked to a chart showing that 62% of respondents bought games at Wal-Mart, compared to 54% who bought games at Best Buy or Gamestop. Only 17% of the people surveyed bought games from Blockbuster, where they're dirty and used.

In other news, Wal-Mart does a lot more business than the other stores, so I'm going to file this under "no duh."
