Lazard Capital Markets analyst Colin Sebastian said : "Our latest channel checks indicate that video game sales overall remain stable through mid-December, consistent with historical industry performance through economic downturns," he says. Software sales, Sebastian says, are still well on track to clock a minimum 20 percent growth for 2008 -- beating analyst targets set at the beginning of the year.
