Take-Two has to be happy that NBA 2K11 was still among the top 10 sellers in the video game industry in May. However, the rest of the industry isn't as physical game sales dipped to a five year low. While NBA 2K11 is selling well, it's rare to see it so high late in the year, which could easily be attributed to a weak field overall past the top few sellers. Given the low overall industry sales, a slowing economy and still high development costs -- one wonders how long the industry in its current form can last. The light sales can be attributed to the light release schedule in May, but the fact people aren't buying games more than a few weeks after their release should be a giant wake up call to publishers.
