its because you can get games and hardware everywhere and cheaper than toys r us ever offered. places like gamestop have upped their exclusives and brick and mortars like Walmart and target have done the same. plus the toy market is too saturated with fly by night items. games and consoles develop a franchise and fan base following. toys r us is a great loss, don't get me wrong, but 75-80% of their products sat on the shelves. they focused a little on everything as opposed to more of what was selling. while great to look at, no one bought it. video games are just like phones, they keep pushing for the next bigger and better advancement or story or experience. that's how they survive and will always trump toys. games interest spans generations, 5-70+ years of age all play video games. toys looses its fizz in pre teens unless your an adult collector, which you would buy more than half of your things online because its not available in stores or through manufacturers themselves.
