2008 another blockbuster video game year?

The Street writes that 2007′s major video-game sales numbers may soon be eclipsed — 2008 doesn’t look like a slouch, either, with “Spore” and “Grand Theft Auto IV” both being moved back into the new year.   Video game sales were at $13.2 billion as of November this year, up 52 percent despite a soft economy, the article writes.  Sure, there’s no “Halo” on the horizon (though “Halo Wars” is expected), but “GTA” should move a whole lot of copies.  The article discusses a few other games that could move big numbers, including “Saints Row 2″ and “Wii Fit.”
