This fall, the video game list has many sequels: Uncharted, Battlefield, Gears of War, Saints Row and Call of Duty. However, the video game world is different from cinema in that many people believe video games become better with each sequel. Call of Duty, for instance, has gained higher sales with each new release. Twenty-five million copies of last year's Call of Duty: Black Ops were sold. Video game fans speculate as to how long Call of Duty can maintain its popularity. 

Nintendo drastically cut the price of their 3-D handheld from $250 to $170 last month. At the same time, they released several new games including Super Mario Brothers and Kid Icarus. This may improve sales for their platform, but experts think that ultimately, their success will ride on the level of content in their games.
