The problem must be in that .2 games portion... Laughing

(I hate statistics like this -- you can't sell .2 worth of a game so why have a stat that jabs at that?)

stats are an asshole! Eg: 2.2 children in the nuclear family.
Simply put, depending on your territory. Money is spent in what floats your boat at the time. Houses are probably awash with consoles and gaming systems, but none of them are gene defining anymore. it's also a saturated market on PC and console. The Wii U is incredibly expensive and has had a heap load of negative press, the 1gig firmware download is a killer for most homes. How that shipped like that is beyond me..
The whole industry as a whole are just out to make a fortune today and sod tomorrow. There is no clever long term plan put down, nor is there any decent catalogue of games coming out. My interest in gaming isn't even a quarter of what it was 10years ago. The PC used to be innovative and the industry leader, now it churns out just as much shit as the consoles -except on more bloody expensive hardware!!
If anything, i find myself playing older titles because they drew me in and held my attention longer. Although i love the freedom of Skyrim/Far Cry3.
At one time i was buying about 1/2 pc titles per month. Now it's 1/2 every 5/6 months.

@Stumpus
I fully agree.
I'm down to buying 1 per year - though this year did not end yet.
"No value" is the biggest showstopper for me.
"internet required" is the second.
Price is the third. I do make exceptions when I know the game is worth it for me, otherwise just I wait for a sale.
Analysts somehow forget to consider those.
