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.
