Video games break record in the United States during the first quarter of 2020

NPD Group confirmed this Friday that the American video game business grew on all its fronts during the last quarter (January – March), in a phenomenon that can be attributed, in part, to the global health crisis that has forced a large part of the consumers to stay home.

  • Collective spending on video games reached $ 10.86 billion dollars (+ 9%)
  • The sale of content reached $ 9.58 billion dollars (+ 11%)
  • The sale of consoles reached $ 773 million (+ 2%)
  • The sale of accessories amounted to $ 503 million (+ 1%)

Regarding the most important games of the period, NPD Group noted the following: Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, DOOM Eternal, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot, Fortnite, Grand Theft Auto V, Minecraft, MLB The Show 20 and NBA 2K20.
