Few of the first owners of computer game systems continue to purchase new computer games. The computer games history owes its present sales level to the number of those purchasing their first computer game system. When that market is nearly exhausted, sales of computer games will drop precipitously, and the computer game industry will be seriously endangered.

Which of the following, if true, most weakens the above argument?

A. The market for first-time user will not be completely exhausted until everyone in the world owns a computer.
B. The new, successful computer game product Bozomania is sold almost exclusively to long-standing computer owners.
C. Most of the people who were part of the first group of computer owners were enthusiastic about computer games when they were first purchased.
D. The first owners of such new technologies as personal computer game systems are more likely than are later owner groups to tire of such possessions after the novelty wears off.
E. All new technologies follow a "boom-then-bust" sales pattern

The argument is that the first owners are indispensable to the computer game industry. To weaken the argument we have choose an answer that say that first owners are not indispensable to the industry. Choice D by saying that latter owners are those that make the industry grow weakens the argument.

Well, computers are not only for video games. People also use it for work and other entertainment. So I don't think that one can affect another. I can tell it as an experienced Overwatch player. Not so long ago one of my friends told me how to buy Overwatch boost fast and I did it. Long story short, I'm a big fan of Overwatch. But if it wouldn't exist, I would do something else. Like watching movies or study more. Or I would listen to music. Maybe all together.
